Vodafone Italia is increasingly green and anticipates the zero emissions of greenhouse gases to 2025.
In addition, the Vodafone network is already 100% powered by renewable sources through the purchase of energy produced exclusively from certified renewable sources for its network and also for its offices.
In this way Vodafone Italia stands at the forefront of true green ethics, also compared to the already ambitious goals of Vodafone at the world level below.
To clear greenhouse gas emissions related to own emissions by 2025 • 5 years ahead of the objectives of the parent, Vodafone Italia will continue its energy efficiency path, will start the replacement of its car fleet with hybrid cars
Green objectives of the Vodafone Group
The Vodafone Group is committed to zeroing greenhouse gas emissions (net zero) by 2040 and confirms that its greenhouse gas reduction targets by 2030 have been approved by Science Based Targets initiative, in line with the
By 2030, the Vodafone Group is committed to zeroing its own greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1) and purchased electricity greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 2).
Vodafone also commits to halve emissions from third-party sources related to Vodafone (Scope 3), which include joint ventures, supply chain, device usage and products sold.
By 2040 the Vodafone Group is committed to completely zeroing emissions related to Scope 3, anticipating by ten years the original commitment to achieve the zero (net zero) emission target by 2050.
Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is the result of collaboration between the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for N SBTi establishes and promotes best practices in defining reduction targets on a scientific basis and independently assesses business targets on the basis of the latest climate change studies.
The Vodafone Group is one of over 500 companies to obtain certification of its greenhouse gas emission reduction targets by SBTi. Vodafone joins leading companies in this sector, setting ambitious reduction targets that limit the increase in global warming to 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels, in line with the most ambitious target set by the Paris Agreement.
The Vodafone Group is one of the first major telecom operators to develop their objectives following the recently established principles in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT) by ITU, GeSi, GSMA and SBTi. The path defines, in line with the latest climate change studies, specific greenhouse gas emission reduction trajectories for companies operating mobile networks, fixed networks and/or data centers. In setting its reduction targets, the Vodafone Group has met the absolute zero threshold defined by the Science Based Targets initiative.
