As we step up our commitment to driving sustainability across the environmental, social and governance spectrums, we’re equally cognisant that we are living through an age of accelerated climate change, a truly critical global issue that threatens our planet and all that live on it.

Players in the digital ecosystem have the potential to make a lasting contribution to climate change mitigation, and in line with our purpose of Advancing Asia the onus is on us to take action.

To this end, we have started Advancing to Zero, our response to the global and industry call to action to achieve a net-zero carbon position. This is our pledge to balance our goals as a business with our impact on planet and society. Strengthened by our membership in the GSMA Climate Action Taskforce, it is a commitment to intensify our focus on climate action across the countries and communities where we have a presence.

Advancing to Zero is guided by the ICT sector science-based pathway to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in meeting the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global warming to well below 2°C. To achieve this, we seek to limit the impact of our operational activities to reduce our carbon emissions and by that, climate risks. This will be managed through harnessing energy efficiency opportunities and investing in renewable or alternative energy solutions.

Moving forward, our Net-Zero Carbon Roadmap will provide further direction and purpose, aiding deeper understanding of our energy consumption and its drivers, setting clearly defined targets delivered through intermediary milestones, and aligning our technology and expertise for the greater good of our planet. Given the variable and unique conditions and landscapes where we operate, this Roadmap will take cognisance of advancements being made in energy, industry, technology, innovation, service delivery and regulatory policies.

This is only the first step. Bolstered by our belief in a more sustainable future, we will continue to develop our Roadmap and look for opportunities to collaborate with our stakeholders on this ambitious global climate agenda, inspiring change across our footprint while driving awareness and action at every level of our organisation. Ultimately, the impetus lies with us. In our journey of Advancing to Zero, we all play a part, as a company and as individuals.
