The climate science is clear and, at Axiata, our response has been similarly unequivocal: Advancing to Zero with a roadmap to reach net-zero carbon no later than 2050.
Starting with our own footprint, we’re driving positive change by introducing greener telco infrastructure solutions and switching to renewable energy wherever viable. Equally, by leveraging the power of loT and artificial intelligence, our operations have become more energy efficient than ever.
As an enabler of change, we advocate a mindful approach to usage of resources across our supply chain. We also work with national
governments to support the transition to lower-carbon economies.
In 2021, we launched the Axiata Net-Zero Carbon Roadmap, our blueprint to reach net-zero carbon no later than 2050, while becoming the first telecommunications company in Malaysia to adopt the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
Our material matters are determined through a bi-yearly process of materiality assessment, detailed below:
We review and update our material matters in response to changes in our business landscape, risk environment, internal policies, KPIs, emerging local and global sustainability trends, regulatory developments and stakeholder opinions. Our review also incorporates peer benchmarking.
We conducted a structured stakeholder prioritisation exercise by leveraging insights from our dialogue with various stakeholders on our material matters. This allows us to identify the influence and dependence of key stakeholders on the Group. We then engage with the prioritised stakeholders to obtain their feedback on material matters.
Upon identification of our material matters, we conducted workshops within the Group to further prioritise materiality matters from the business perspective.
