Achieving Climate Targets – Climate target set? Check…. Now what do we do?

Wednesday 28 Jun 2023 | Climate Action |

This engaging session delved into strategies and actionable steps for mobile network operators to achieve their net zero targets. In 2020, the GSMA and Carbon Trust published a guide called ‘Setting Climate Targets’, which explained step-by-step how to align carbon targets with the new ICT sector pathway to net zero. 

Since then, the mobile industry has seen a significant increase in operators setting net zero targets. There are now 62 with targets (up from 50 in 2022), accounting for 63% of global mobile network industry revenue and 49% by connections. 

Reuniting with the Carbon Trust, the GSMA has developed a follow-up guide called ‘Achieving Climate Targets‘. This invaluable resource offers practical, step-by-step instructions specifically tailored to the mobile industry on how to reduce carbon emissions, drawn from best practices across the industry.
