Reduce industry emissions

We helped our customers to avoid 2.7 million tonnes of CO2 emissions in 2021 – the equivalent of taking 1.2 million vehicles off Australian roads per year.*

Moving to the cloud

In 2021, Telstra’s cloud solutions helped customers avoid 106,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions (tCO2e).*

Telstra mobile and mobile broadband plans are certified carbon neutral with Climate Active.**

Connected workers

In 2021, approximately 36% of the Australian workforce usually worked from home. Telstra provided internet connectivity to millions of these workers, enabling customers to avoid 806,000 tCO2e.*

Fleet management

Using Telstra IoT sensors and LTE technology to track and monitor vehicle fleets, optimise routes and reduce fuel consumption, Telstra enabled our customers to reduce emissions of 212,000 tCO2e  in 2021.*

  • **The carbon emissions of Telstra mobile and mobile broadband plans are now offset. This includes the SIM cards and the energy that powers our network to make calls and stream content. While we don’t offset your physical device (i.e., your phone itself), we contribute by ensuring that when you use it to make a call or use data, you’re doing so in a more sustainable way.

We were looking for a partner that could help us lay the foundations for the future and to reimagine the fabric of our underlying technology, communications and security for all our assets.

You can place these (VR) headsets on, walk through the empty building you're about to fit out and go, hang on, the model isn't right here. Let's update this model before we end up spending two weeks’ worth of effort and energy to get these trades out here, and subbies out here, to finish the work.
