Protecting the Planet

We seek to protect the planet and enable our customers to do the same. We strive to reduce carbon emissions and achieve Net Zero from our operations and value chains. We contribute to the circular economy and empower our customers to reduce their environmental footprint.

Net zero carbon emissions

We're working to cut carbon emissions from our UK operations to net zero by 2027.

We're investing millions into energy-efficient equipment; powering our network, offices and stores with 100% renewable electricity; and ensuring our fleet vehicles are all electric.

We're also working with our suppliers to significantly reduce their emissions. By 2040, Vodafone will be net zero across its full carbon footprint globally.

Reduce, reuse, and recycle electronic waste

Network equipment

We reuse, recover or recycle 100% of our network waste. Our business-to-business marketplace lets us re-sell decommissioned network equipment to other businesses.

Joining forces with WWF

We've partnered with WWF to help reduce electronic waste and promote a more circular economy for mobile devices.

Our campaign, 'one million phones for the planet', encourages people and businesses across the UK to hand in their old phones and tablets to be traded in or donated to social causes

For every device handed in, we'll donate £1 to WWF conservation projects across the world.

Tech to help our customers

We're committed to helping our customers save 350 million tonnes of CO2e over the next decade.

We estimate that our Internet of Things solutions have helped save 22.7 million tonnes of CO2e globally since 2020.

Protect UK forests and tackle climate change

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and Forest Research are helping us explore how technology can monitor the role trees play in tackling climate change.
