Sustainability is fast becoming a key business strategy for major telco operators. In April 2021, the Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA) reported that mobile operators covering 50% of global connections and 65% of industry revenue have now committed to science-based targets. Many operators have gone even further, aggressively increasing their climate and renewable energy use targets. ABI Research’s recently published Sustainability Index: Telco Operators offers in-depth insight into the state of sustainability in the telco industry, including:
- A detailed evaluation of ten telco operators and their sustainability efforts in the following: renewable energy, network upgrades, energy efficiency, waste disposal and circular economy, green buildings and vehicles, and reporting and governance
- Comprehensive analysis of market trends and sustainability shifts in the telco industry
- Side-by-side comparisons of telco operators and their performance in sustainable practices
This report provides a summary of the most critical findings.
