Ethical Corporation and Vodafone have teamed up to produce a lively online debate on how companies in mobile should tackle their impact on the climate.
In the new report Carbon Connections: Quantifying mobile's role in tackling climate change, published by Accenture and Vodafone, 13 wireless telecommunications opportunities are identified that have the potential to reduce carbon emissions by 113 Mt CO2e a year and cut associated energy costs by €43 billion across the EU-25 countries in 2020.
Spurred by this new report, Ethical Corporation has teamed up with Vodafone to host an online Live Debate on September 30th 2009.
The debate aims to provide the platform for a robust and challenging discussion on how mobile can enable a low carbon economy
Speakers for the debate include:
Chris Burgess, Group Head of Corporate Responsibility, at Vodafone
Joaquim Croca, Head of Corporate Responsibility Performance & Reporting at Vodafone
James Farrar, Vice President of Corporate Citizenship at SAP
