With its participation in the Earth Hour, A1 is sending a signal towards climate protection. All subsidiaries are joining the activities and are creating awareness for the sustainable topic of the protection of resources. The dynamic trend towards digitalization demands for more energy consumption and thus involves higher CO2 emissions. Therefore, A1 creates both its infrastructure and digital products and solutions as environmentally friendly as possible. With communication companies, CO2 emissions mostly arise from electricity demand due to its network infrastructure.
Building on the three-pillar model of sustainable development "people, planet, profit", the Telekom Austria Group’s approach to sustainability management includes social, ecological and economic aspects. The sustainability strategy focuses on four action areas "Network & Customers", "Environment", "Employees" and "Society". These are derived from a new materiality analysis carried out in 2015 with the involvement of stakeholders and clear goals and specific key performance indicators were defined for each area.
For 10 years, A1 has been partner of WWF´s Earth Hour and is also participating on March 19, when lights are being switched off worldwide. 33 A1 Shops are sending a signal for climate protection and turn off the lights of shop windows for one night. During the days before Earth Hour, A1 Shop employees provide customers with information on how to save energy while using the phone, for example by extending the battery life. On top, A1 shop customers might win a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge that comes with an ultra energy-saving mode.
