Advancing Asia as a New Generation Digital Champion

Planet & Society

We’re striving to minimise our impact on the planet and to reduce our environmental footprint.

IMPROVING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE AND SUPPORTING COMMUNITIES

We have a carbon reduction strategy that focuses on three aspects of our operations: building greener structures, investing in renewable energy technologies, and increasing energy efficiency to reduce, mitigate and adapt to climate change.

Across the region, our OpCos are also engaging with stakeholders to understand how they can play a crucial role during times of natural disasters and other humanitarian emergencies.

To bring about positive and sustainable change, we impact communities through consciously identifying and working with local partners on unique programmes that leverage our OpCos’ individual strengths to meet their specific needs.
