TeliaSonera switches to digital annual reporting for the sake of the environment
- 2008-02-08 06:58 UTC
Two weeks before the annual general meeting on March 31, 2008, TeliaSonera is releasing its annual report at teliasonera.com. The initiative is yet another step in the company’s continued efforts to reduce its impact on the environment.
The text, the layout and the method of navigation in the digital annual report have been designed to make reading easy and accessible. When needed, the reader can use the report as a tool for more detailed information by pulling up graphs with financial trends in different areas.
“As the Nordic countries’ leading telecom company with many shareholders, it is natural to transition to a digital annual report. This means we save about 20 tonnes of paper annually, which is the equivalent of 120 trees or one and half transport lorries of wood”, says Camilla Backström, Head of Corporate Responsibility within TeliaSonera.
TeliaSonera actively works for a sustainable environment and has significantly reduced the number of business trips through the efficient use of teleconferencing and online meetings. In Sweden TeliaSonera has switched to green electricity and has reduced its carbon dioxide emissions by 70 per cent since 2001.
