Today as we celebrate UAE being named the host country for #COP28- UN Climate change Conference which will play a critical role in realising the global #ClimateAction goals towards a better, sustainable, and greener tomorrow for future generations.
With Egypt also chosen as the host country for #COP27, this is an extremely proud moment as this reiterates our belief of working across our operations on creative solutions and adopting technologies that ensure long-term benefits to our planet and its climate as we do our part and work towards realising the climate action ambitions and the UN SDG’s.
Every day we make choices in our lives that affect the environment, the climate, and our communities. In the new digital economy, sustainability must be embedded in our business.
As we pause and reflect on the telecom industry’s role in achieving the climate action goals, we can see how technology empowers the next era of digital innovations where broadband communication, AI, IoT, and machine learning enable new ways of living.
AtEtisalat" target="_blank" rel="noopener"> Etisalat Group, we strive to operate responsibly and transparently by living our inspiration of ‘Together matters’ and ‘Together Towards a Sustainable Future’.
I am proud that since the beginning, we have channelled our efforts into transforming our infrastructure into the best in the world.
Etisalat networks are not only leading globally in terms of quality and speeds, but also contributes to lowered energy consumption and reduced waste.
The telecom industry is in a strong position to positively impact a broader scale, not just by reducing its carbon footprint but by enabling other sectors to achieve their sustainability and climate action goals.
Etisalat Group will continue to channel its efforts toward providing safe, efficient, and environmentally responsible ICT services that will help preserve our planet and its climate for future generations while maintaining sustainability goals as our guiding compass.
