Expresso is determined and committed to reducing our environmental footprint by implementing best practices in the way we manage our business. Our processes, policies and procedures, products and services and our suppliers are all introduced and managed to ensure we minimise our impact on the environment.
Operating in Africa means that we are particularly mindful of the resources we consume. In particular, energy and water. We are constantly striving to reduce our energy consumption, always seeking to find alternative, sustainable means of energy.
It goes without saying that energy, water and waste management programmes are central to our environmental strategy. Expresso identifies way in which our customers and businesses in all of our markets can use telecommunications products and services to reduce their own impact on the environment.
Our environmental strategy and framework for developing environment friendly policies has three specific aims:
- To reduce our operational impact that includes energy and water consumption, as well as our use of paper and air travel
- To engage with local governments and non-governmental organisations to develop and encourage community programmes that reduce greenhouse gas emissions; our employees are encouraged to actively get involved too
- To promote sustainable telecommunications networks by identifying environmental risks and opportunities in our industry; this also extends to the distribution of our products and services
We want our products and services to enable our customers to lead a more sustainable lifestyle, realising that collectively we must work together in caring about our society and the impact we have on our environment.
“Expresso recognises the importance of building and using sustainable and renewable energy sources. As we are supporting and connecting many different communities, being energy efficient is of paramount importance to the customers we serve.”
