Company recycled more than 90% of waste, saved more than 10,000 litres of fuel and reduces electric energy consumption on a daily basis
March 14, 2012 – Telenor is the first telecom operator in Serbia to be granted the Certificate for the environmental management system. The formal certificate presentation ceremony represents the official recognition of the company’s long-term commitment to environmental protection.
Telenor has been applying ISO 14001:2004 standard or the Environmental Management System since 2010 so as to reduce the influence of its business activities on the environment. This system applies to the entire company, all its activities, products and services, as well as all facilities which have indirect or direct influence on the environment.
“Although compared to other companies Telenor is not a major pollutant, we have introduced the Environmental Management System which helped us reduce our negative influence on the environment in which we operate. In 2011, we recycled almost 90% of waste we generate, saved over 10,000 litres of fuel for company cars compared to 2010 and also reduced electric energy consumption. By our example and work, we want to draw the attention to this crucial issue which, if disregarded, could have serious repercussions on people’s lives and health”, says Maja Neable, Telenor CHRO.
