BT has led the way on climate action for three decades and we've pledged to become a Net Zero emissions business by 2030 for our own operations, and 2040 for our supply chain and customer emissions. That means anyone who buys mobile or broadband from BT, EE or Plusnet are already supplied by networks that use 100% renewable energy. With the second largest commercial fleet in the UK, we’ve outlined plans to switch the majority of our vehicles over to electric or zero emissions by 2030.
At BT our purpose is ‘we connect for good’. With a customer base of 30m UK households, 1m SMEs and some of the biggest global multinational organisations, we’re committed to helping our customers cut their carbon footprint. In 2019, our products helped them produce 13 million fewer tonnes of greenhouse gases. In 2020, we refurbished and recycled more than 900,000 broadband hubs and TV boxes. And by 2025 100% of our plastic packaging will be reused, recycled, or composted. We are facing a climate emergency. We need to do more and act now. By working together with our customers, colleagues, suppliers and other organisations, we can build back better and bring about lasting change.
