Climate Target and Environmental Sustainability

Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering differently. Effects that put the existence of species and the plant at risk. Acting on climate change is not only important, it is a must.

In 2015, 196 parties adopted The Paris Agreement (https://unfccc.int/process-and-meetings/the-paris-agreement/the-paris-agreement), aligning on trying to limit global warming to 1.5°C . In 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published a special report on the impact of global warming of 1.5°C (https://www.ipcc.ch/sr15/) above pre-industrial levels, showing the need to keep the warming to a maximum of 1.5°C. To achieve this goal, global greenhouse gas emissions need to halve every decade, reaching net-zero by 2050.

At UET Group, we help companies to build and run better broadband networks and reduce the energy needed. We are committed to doing our part to step up to the urgent challenge of climate change, ensure a just transition to a low carbon economy and provide a healthy future for all.

For this, UET Group stepped up their commitments and set their own 1.5°C aligned climate targets. In 2020, UET Group set the target to operate carbon-neutral by 2030. This includes the operational activities and the supply chain. UET Group also has a target to realise and achieve a 25% energy saving for our Gigabit Connection Systems by 2023 compared with the systems in 2014.

We always want to do more and become better related to targets and achievements to protect our environment, our planet. We believe that it is not enough to become climate neutral in the already defined areas of Scope 1 (own operations), Scope 2 (purchased services) and Scope 3 (supply chain including suppliers and customers).

We have a responsibility to people and society. We have extended the goal of being climate neutral and include our team – everyone who works for us as an employee.

What does this mean? How will we work to achieve this ambitious goal? In addition to the ongoing initiative we will conduct and implement projects to analyze the emissions generated by our team. Next, we identify and implement options and projects to reduce impact and emissions. Finally we will engage in projects to capture carbon (CO2) to compensate and offset emissions – as a company for our team.

“It is not an option! We consider this target and effort expansion as a mandatory requirement and responsibility when taking environmental protection and climate neutral targets serious.”  Werner Neubauer, Chief Executive Officer
