Grameenphone Ltd, the country’s largest mobile phone operator, has been awarded the Green Mobile Award for its Climate Change programmes.
“This programme has set clear targets for the adoption of renewable power sources, including water conservation, and displays commitment to long term pursuit of the project aims,” the GSMA award judges said while presenting the prize to GP.
Vivek Sood, CEO of Grameenphone, received the award at the Global Mobile Award prize ceremony during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Tuesday.
The Global Mobile Awards uniquely offer organisations the opportunity to showcase the latest mobile products, services and initiatives to the world.
The Climate Change Program was initiated by Grameenphone in 2010, with the objective of minimising the negative environmental impact on the community, says a GP press release today.
Around the same time, GP adopted EMS [Environmental Management Systems] approach that laid out the policy framework to look for continual improvement in every other area.
