Corporate Responsibility Charter

Back in 1996, ETNO launched its Environment and Sustainability Charter, demonstrating its members’ commitment to reducing their carbon footprint. Thanks to measures to optimize energy consumption of their networks and data centres and increased use of renewable energy, ETNO members managed to continue reducing their CO2 emissions. The ETNO bi-annual Sustainability Report monitors progress made by the 22 signatories the ETNO Sustainability and Environmental Charter that is open to all players on the market. The signatories of the Charter account globally for a turnover of about €200 billion. Thanks to their efforts to improve energy efficiency, ETNO Charter signatories have been continuously reducing their CO2 emissions despite a significant increase in overall energy demand due to growing mobile and data traffic. ETNO launched its Corporate Responsibility Charter which reflects the new challenges ahead and increasing engagement of ETNO members in new areas such as minor protection online and supply chain management.

The SD WG Chair is Dr. Heinz-Gerd Peters of Deutsche Telekom AG: Heinz-Gerd.Peters@telekom.de.

Minor protection online

ETNO members are strongly committed to protecting the younger generations. The Child Protection Task Team of the ETNO Corporate Responsibility working group is steering ETNO members' activities in this field. The aim is to create a knowledge base and to raise awareness so that ETNO members may identify and understand existing and potential risks, adopt new measures and improve existing ones and thus continue to proactively tackle the threats. The overall aim is to make cyberspace and ICT services safer for the younger generations. As part of this commitment, ETNO launched a Website giving an overview of in-built security features in broadband, mobile and IP-TV services, examples of services conceived especially for children and awareness and educational campaigns.
