Technology, media, and telecommunications (TMT) sustainability

We are taking action to address climate change – one of the biggest societal challenges in generations

As a responsible business, we are determined to play a leadership role in ensuring technology creates a sustainable future. We drive internal change across every aspect of our operations, while helping our clients address their own environmental challenges. We also team up with our partners and suppliers, start-ups, policy makers, governments, and academics to make sustainable progress together.

We have been committed to cutting our carbon emissions for many years and were one of the first companies in our sector to have our carbon-reduction targets validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Our current targets have been confirmed as being in line with the level of reduction needed to limit global warming to 1.5° Celsius.

These ambitions are also demonstrated in the work we do in the technology, media, and telecommunications (TMT) sector. We believe a sustainability focus must grow to match the pace of evolving technology; this is a key factor for succeeding in our journey to net zero. Despite the hardships of the current business climate, our conviction and promise remain strong. However, each industry is different and has its own challenges, demanding unique approaches and solutions.

Every technology enterprise wants to capitalize on the latest trends to thrive in this digital economy – but transformation projects must be sustainable. In some industries, like media and entertainment, the answer is less clear, as companies are still trying to determine how to best operate sustainably. In telecommunications, the effort needs to be strong across multiple dimensions, such as the 7Rs of the circular economy, to ensure 5G is green as it is leveraged by organizations and expands in our society.
