Vodafone's efforts to slash its carbon footprint don't just involve technology - culture and accountability are just as important to effect change, says Francesca Serravalle, senior manager for infrastructure and energy at Vodafone.
Vodafone’s approach to meeting its net zero targets depends just as much on a culture of accountability as it does on embracing the latest technology, a Vodafone expert commented during TelecomTV’s ‘The Green Network Summit’. Mobile network operators shared and exchanged expertise and best practice on how to reduce carbon footprints at the event.
Francesca Serravalle, senior manager for infrastructure and energy at Vodafone, told the other panellists how the company’s targets to reach net zero for its UK operations by 2027 is underpinned by a fully budgeted multi-year programme and support from in-house and external experts.
For transparency and credibility, the targets are also backed by a culture of openness and accountability, she said. The targets were developed in partnership with the Carbon Trust and then validated by the Science Based Targets Initiative. And the company’s senior management is assessed on its progress in meeting them.
