France Telecom has published its latest Corporate Responsibility Report, which covers measures undertaken in 2007.
The report, based on AA 1000 principles, highlights a new phase in the Group's approach to corporate responsibility that has been deployed in more than 20 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The approach is based on the Group's code of ethics as well as on 'common issues and challenges, action plans and dedicated management tools'.
Nine issues based on the expectations of the Group's stakeholders have been identified, including innovative solutions to sustainable development, developing access for all, supporting community involvement and fighting climate change.
The report provides details on each of these issues and describes the main achievements to date. But it also highlights:
a commitment to a 20 per cent cut in the Group's carbon footprint by 2020
deployment of a ventilation system across 400 sites in France, considerably reducing energy consumption
installation of solar power units in Senegal to extend mobile network coverage, with a reduced environmental impact. This project will be extended to the Ivory Coast, Madagascar, Guinea and Mali by the end of 2009
a free parental control service for internet usage in several European countries
development of widely-accessible mobile banking services in the Ivory Coast, to be extended to other African countries and the Middle East in the near future.
