ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION

Environment protection is especially important for us, and we put extra emphasis on climate protection in the context of our operations. In addition to sustainable and responsible operations, we believe it is our responsibility to make our customers, vendors and partners more climate conscious, too, i.e. providing opportunities to them to make their lives more environment-conscious.

Magyar Telekom is committed to environment protection. We were the first among Hungarian large enterprises and one of the first among international telecoms to become carbon-neutral in 2015. We managed to achieve the same in 2016, partly by means of the following environment protection activities.

Energy consumption

We strive to decrease the energy consumption of the Group, and buy 100% of the electric power we use from renewable sources. As a result of our PSTN replacement project launched in 2014, we migrated our customers to a modern IP network, which is sustainable in the long run, to thus decrease our annual electricity consumption.

Energy efficiency

Magyar Telekom puts extra emphasis on investing into technologies that future operations can benefit from. In order to decrease our energy consumption, we adopt energy-efficient assets as part of developing our networks, and in the spirit of our new strategy, we measure not only the energy efficiency of the equipment we use, but that of ones used by our customers, too. Our goal is to enable our customers to save energy and environmental resources.

Enviromental indicators

The environment-conscious nature of our operations can also be measured in numbers, i.e. environmental indicators. Their use allows us to document our environmental activities and to track the progress.

Environment-focused managment systems

Magyar Telekom takes into account the relevant aspects of sustainability and environment protection in the context of its own operations, too. In that, it relies upon management systems compliant with international standards, like ISO 9000, ISO 14000, ISO 27000, ISO 22300 and ISO 50000.

Environment-conscious transportation

Educating our employees forms a major part of our company’s sustainability efforts. Telekom offers the option to its employees to adopt environment-conscious transportation means in Budapest and between sites in the countryside, as well as have introduced telework and the technological platforms required for conference calls, which lead to the elimination of thousands of kilometers of travel each year.
