O2 Sets Out To Halve Emissions By 2015

O2 has today (February 7th) launched an ambitious three-year sustainability plan, which it is hoping will halve emissions by 2015. A raft of guidelines have been released, which could make more people think about recycling their mobile phone once it is no longer in use.

The company's plans promise to stimulate social and environmental advancement by delivering up to four million tonnes of carbon savings and equipping a million young people with vital skills within three years.

Chief executive of the firm Ronan Dunne said a truly sustainable future in an environmental, social and economic sense requires large firms to take bold steps to tackle the challenges together.

"As a leading provider of digital services with in excess of 22 million customers, we are uniquely positioned to use the scale of our business and our understanding of technology," he added.

In addition to? well as the eco-friendly initiatives, O2 will attempt to provide youngsters in local communities vital skills that will be able to help them in later life.
