Tele2 claims to be first climate-neutral operator in Nordic and Baltic regions

Friday 17 April 2020 | 10:31 CET | News

The group's total carbon dioxide emissions have decreased by over 90 percent, or 45,000 tons per year. It said this is comparable to the annual emissions of 10,000 average Swedes.
