  1. See the full report, Deloitte: Enabling Positive Climate Action for details, assumptions and qualifications.
  2. 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. 

Using CloudHealth, Telstra and Purple were able to help one of the world’s largest manufacturing firms track cloud usage and costs with intelligent insights in near real time.
