Commitment to Environmental Responsibility

Telia says it is committed to achieving net zero by 2040. To achieve net zero, Telia must reduce emissions by 90 percent (compared to the base year 2018) and neutralize the rest. By 2030, Telia commits to at least halving absolute GHG emissions compared to 2018 and offsetting the rest, while continuing to move towards net-zero.
