Magyar Telekom, the Hungarian unit of German telco giant Deutsche Telekom, operated entirely carbon-free last year, according to a sustainability report MTel published today.

Over the last year, sales of products and services aiming to increase sustainability were up by 21% compared to the previous year, while MTel was also able to complete the establishment of sustainable logistics management. 

The report was carried out at the “Comprehensive” level of the Global Reporting Initiative’s fourth-generation principles (GRI G4), MTel noted. The report was certified by the Hungarian unit of PricewaterhouseCoopers following the international standards of ISAE 3000.

“The biggest sustainability achievement of 2015, I believe, is that the whole group’s operations became entirely carbon-free,” MTel CEO Christopher Mattheisen said. “We are the first such enterprise in Hungary to reach this, and we are among the few such enterprises around the world,” the CEO added.

The Hungarian unit’s electricity usage is covered 100% from renewable sources, while the companyʼs fossil fuel energy emissions were neutralized by supporting green projects, the report stresses.
