Tele2 has counted its CO2-emissions according to the GHG Protocol Scope 1 and 2.
Based on the result in 2013, Tele2 could be said to have a potential environmental liability related to climate change of 81,000 tons of CO2-eq. Should these emissions be regulated, for instance in a future "Kyoto agreement" in 2015 it could mean an estimated cost of 450,000 EUR for buying allowances, calculated by using today's spot price in the EU Emission Trading System (EU-ETS) (5.60 EUR, 2014/01/31). The information was published on our home page as part of the GRI G4 report. Read more here.
Electricity consumed in base stations, which counts for approximately 71% of our total emissions, is by far the largest source of indirect emissions.
