Focus on base stations for emission reduction

Tele2 has gathered and calculated CO2 emissions data, related to energy consumption, for Q1-Q3 according to the GHG protocol scope 1 and 2.

The result, even though not complete, clearly shows the source of our largest impact with over 91% of our CO2 emissions coming from base stations. To start with we are a low emitter compared to manufacturing companies, and the whole ICT could be said to count for approximately 4% of the total CO2 emissions, but it is important for us to keep track and improve anyway. Starting the follow up and reporting process early gives us plenty of time to cross check figures, ensure completeness and traceability for full year data to be published in the Annual Report.
