Telstra CEO Andy Penn, on our climate ambitions

Carbon neutral from this year

In 2020 we announced 3 climate change ambitions:

  1. Bring our operations to net-zero emissions (carbon neutral) in 2020, certified by Climate Active.
  2. Reduce our absolute emissions by at least 50% by 2030.
  3. Enable renewable energy generation equivalent to 100% of our consumption by 2025.

Taking action


We're proud to be certified carbon neutral

We are proud to announce that we have been certified carbon neutral in our operations, receiving Climate Active’s largest certification in Australia. We’ve also become the second telecommunications business in Australia to do so behind our Belong brand, who gained certification in December last year.
