Vodafone to power all European operations from renewable sources
Telecommunications firm Vodafone said on Wednesday that it will power all of its European operations from renewable sources, starting 1 July.
Vodafone stated the move marked "a key step" towards its goal of reducing its own carbon emissions to "net zero" by 2030 and those across its entire value chain by 2040.
Nick Read, the FTSE 100-listed group's chief executive, said: "From 1 July 2021, Vodafone's customers across Europe can be reassured that the connectivity they use is entirely powered by electricity from renewable sources.
"This is a major milestone towards our goal of reducing our own global carbon emissions to net zero by 2030, helping our customers reduce their own environmental footprint and continuing to build an inclusive and sustainable digital society in all of our markets."
As of 0855 BST, Vodafone shares were up 0.80% at 131.28p.
