Switching to a cloud-based VoIP system has the potential to cut CO2 emissions from telephony equivalent to removing 22 million cars from the road. In an era prioritizing sustainability, traditional landlines contribute to significant carbon footprints and electronic waste. VoIP, utilizing the internet’s power, eliminates physical infrastructure, reduces electronic waste, and operates efficiently. Beyond resource conservation, VoIP’s energy efficiency, support for remote work, and future innovations, including AI optimization and renewable energy sources, position it as a sustainable solution. Join the movement for a cleaner world with every VoIP-powered conversation—a pledge to the planet.

Taking bold steps towards combatting climate change, Japan’s leading telecom firm, NTT DoCoMo, unveils ambitious initiatives looking to drastically cut its scope 3 emissions.

T-Mobile has announced its latest sustainability initiative, a commitment to reach net-zero emissions across its entire carbon footprint by 2040. The operator has also joined The Climate Pledge, a community of organizations working together to combat global carbon emissions.    T-Mobile is the first wireless company in the United States to set a net-zero objective that has been certified by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) using its Net-Zero Standard. The target includes direct and indirect emissions from T-Mobile’s operations and facilities, purchased electricity, and all remaining indirect scope 3 emissions, such as those produced by suppliers, customer device usage, materials, employee travel and other factors, accounting for roughly two-thirds of the company’s total carbon footprint.   The Climate Pledge, launched in 2019 by Amazon and Global Optimism, is a pledge to reach net-zero emissions 10 years before the date targeted by the Paris Agreement. T-Mobile joins almost 400 companies…
