Sustainability and the corporate mobile eBook

Sustainability is rising up the agenda, as public and private sector organisations recognise the need for a cleaner environmental record to improve their brand perception.

As the trend towards a more sustainable work practice increases, so does the need to look beyond obvious ‘green’ policies such as recycling paper, managing emissions or putting out an annual environmental impact report.

One area that has so far received little attention, is mobile telecommunications, and in particular, the environmental impact of having a separate mobile phone for both work and personal use. With an estimated 14m people in the UK carrying more than one phone, and the environmental impact of the manufacture, use and disposal of these, organisations should take a serious look at their current mobile policy.
