Telenor Bulgaria saves more than 143 tons of paper in 2018

Friday 12 July 2019 | 15:40 CET | News

Telenor Bulgaria saved more than 143 tons of paper thanks to the growing number of customers who are taking advantage of the electronic invoices in Telenor's business portal or through the MyTelenor app. Thanks to the operator's efforts for responsible use of natural resources, the company managed to reduce the amount of used paper by 8 percent compared to 2017, to reduce by 50 percent the use of the refrigerants and to achieve 7 percent reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. This came as a conclusion from the 2018 Telenor CSR Report, which the telecom publishes for eight year in a row.

Currently, 27 of the Telenor base stations are using solar and wind energy. During 2018, the green energy consumption increased by 13 percent, reducing significantly greenhouse gases and atmospheric pollutants. At the same time, the operator considerably lowered its electricity consumption in 2018, saving close to 372 MWh. The optimisation and the high efficiency of its base stations is leading to a 15 percent minimal increase of the used energy since 2015, compared to over 500 percent growth in data transfer for the same period.

Telenor said it continues to collect and turn over for recycling obsolete electrical and electronic equipment as well as telephones and accessories. In 2018, Telenor shops collected 4.5 times more mobile phones for recycling and 2.5 times more accessories compared to the previous year.
