Airtel and COAI Fail To Deliver On Commitment On Sustainable Emission

By October 20th, 2011 AT 2:34 PM

Airtel and COAI Fail To Deliver On Commitment On Sustainable EmissionAirtel and COAI failed to honour their commitment of disclosing a detailed and sustainable emission reduction plan, including a substantial substitution of diesel with renewable alternatives to power their network operations by September 2011.

The public commitment was made following a meeting between Bharti Airtel, representatives of COAI and Greenpeace India on June 10th, 2011 .

The meeting between Greenpeace India and the Bharti Airtel led COAI was preceded by a public campaign where over 70,000 individuals from across the country urged the company by substantially shifting to renewable sources for its energy requirements.

Recently, Vodafone Essar and Google have disclosed their carbon emissions and renewable energy goals publicly .

In the absence of public reporting by any of the companies in the Indian telecom sector so far, this could have far-reaching consequences for the long-term sustainability and profitability of the telecom industry in India.
