We are on a mission to build a greener future. With millions of connections across our networks, the mobile industry can play a key role in reaching net zero – helping businesses and consumers cut emissions with flexible working technology, smart meters, and a host of 5G-enabled solutions.
The science is clear – the next decade is critical for action on climate change. It's more important than ever for governments and businesses to lock-in carbon reduction targets. The planet can’t wait.
In 2019, the UK was the first major economy to make a legally binding pledge to reach net zero by 2050. The UK Government published its Green Industrial Plan in November last year, followed a month later by a commitment to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions by at least 68% by 2030. All of this is encouraging and reflects leadership and ambition. But much of it cannot be delivered without businesses taking substantive steps to prioritise climate action.
At O2, we are committed to playing our part in tackling climate change, doing what we can to protect the environment and helping others do the same. We’re on a journey to help everyone on O2’s network reduce their impact, building a greener future through mobile and digital connectivity to power a low carbon world.
