Thursday 27 May 2021 | 10:29 CET | News
The Masmovil group said it has become the first telecommunications operator in Europe to achieve zero net carbon emissions, reaching the milestone in 2020. Following an audit by the Ecodes Foundation, Spain's fourth largest operator confirmed that it had successfully offset all greenhouse gas emissions generated by its activity last year, including all its Scope 1 and 2 emissions (emissions derived from the company's direct activity), as well as Scope 3 emissions covering paper, water and toner from printers.
