For A1 Telekom Austria Group, the path towards a responsible development of its core business involves the continuous reduction of its ecological foot print. Ensuring that the dynamic increase in data processing and data storage as a result of digitalization does not result in comparatively more energy and CO2 requires energy-efficiency-enhancing measures.
For this purpose, the Group sets itself guiding targets in the areas of resource preservation, energy efficiency, renewable energy, emissions prevention and the promotion of climate-friendly mobility.
For several years, environmental management systems and an environmental policy that applies to the entire Group have allowed A1 Telekom Austria Group’s subsidiaries to implement, control and continuously improve activities surrounding climate and environmental protection.
Digitalization and the increasing data traffic results in a rise in energy use. This presents challenges for telecommunications providers. To face these challenges, A1 Telekom Austria Group relies on a whole range of measures. On the one hand, to reduce its energy demand and, on the other, to use energy as efficiently as possible.
Energy consumption represents A1 Telekom Austria Group’s most significant environmental impact. This is why, besides increasing its energy efficiency, the Group also relies on the use of sources of renewable energy
