Our climate strategy
As the world looks to recover from the Covid-19 crisis, we have an opportunity to use our tech, innovation and influence to put climate action at the heart of the economic recovery. This year, we joined over 200 leading businesses in urging the UK Government to build back better by creating a fairer, more resilient and low carbon society.
Our infrastructure is powering the UK’s road to net zero. We’re investing in full fibre broadband and 5G networks that will pave the way for lower-carbon ways of life and work. Our products and services help consumers and businesses shrink their environmental footprint. And our new green tech innovation platform fosters breakthrough technologies to cut carbon in the public sector. We’re partnering for change with suppliers, customers, peers, government agencies and others to inspire wider climate action and solutions. In the last year, we championed new coalitions, including the UK Electric Fleets Coalition that’s driving the transition to electric vehicles.
