Circular Economy

Reduce your environmental footprint with Vodafone Business.

Grow sustainably while protecting your profit

Businesses face a number of challenges on their path to circularity, including rising costs and energy security concerns. For them to grow sustainably, they need greater visibility and independence across their own business models.

Sustainability is significant but protecting profit margins remains a core priority. It’s crucial to understand though that the two can exist together. 

If a business strives to become leaner in its operations, it’ll naturally focus on the better use of all its resources.

Supporting a circular economy

Consider sustainability when buying devices

Opting for energy-efficient devices and those with eco-friendly certifications can help to reduce your carbon footprint, conserve resources and minimise waste.

Renew devices less frequently

Minimise electronic waste by extending the useful life of your devices. Reducing device turnover also saves costs by avoiding frequent purchases and upgrades.

Rethink your approach to old devices

Our Everyone.Connected initiative makes it easy to play your part in reducing digital exclusion. Donate unwanted devices to the Great British Tech Appeal, and they’ll be recycled or passed on to those in need.

How we can help

We’re working to build a circular model that allows customers to choose the right devices to meet their sustainability agenda and recycle devices at the end of their useful life.

Our strategy is to cut CO2 emissions and electronic waste – and ultimately help our customers do the same.
