American Tower Has Spent Almost $300 Million on Remedies and Enhancements for Fuel Efficiency

The almost $300 million that ATC has so far committed in energy saving upgrades, renewable energy deployments, and power storage technologies demonstrates its dedication to environment. “Over the last several years, ATC Africa has made forward-thinking investments to ensure we achieve tangible reductions in our on-site fossil fuel consumption in Africa,” stated Marek Busfy, SVP and CEO of ATC Africa. According to Airtel Africa CEO Segun Ogunsanya, “sustainability is at the core of [the carrier’s] strategy.” Also important, he shared, is extending coverage to “increasingly remote areas.”

Every new construction will conform to ATC Africa's green site requirements, which the firm claims would "substantially reduce reliance on fossil fuels" and assist the tower company in reaching its science-based goals (SBTs). By 2025, the company wants to have 12,000 solar assist sites. By 2035, it wants to have lowered indirect scope 3 supply chain emissions by at least 40% and direct scope 1 and scope 2 GHG emissions by at least 40%.

The business added that it has set aside new capital to pay for the execution of upcoming resource efficiency. “As we selectively extend the platform services we offer, we are demonstrating our commitment to introduce new and renewable sources of energy to power our sites, which protects the industry, our customers and consumers from ongoing and future volatility in fuel prices,” Busfy continued.

The partners have also agreed to keep collaborating to gradually adapt current telecom sites to ATC Africa's green site requirements. Additionally, Airtel Africa and ATC Africa will work together to educate underserved populations in information and communication technologies.
