Sustainability Objective 01
Preserving our planet is at the centre of our sustainability plan. At StarHub, we are conscious of the need to understand and minimise our environmental impact as we continue to enhance our competitiveness and expand our business and network infrastructure. We are as keen on reducing our environmental footprint as we are on helping businesses and communities in Singapore to tackle the same challenge.
of E-Waste Recycled
through RENEW, our flagship public recycling programme. This represents an increase of over 56% from the previous year.
We are trialing an “intelligent power saving mode” on our 3G base transceiver stations (BTS) that will be activated during low traffic hours daily. During this period, the number of frequency carriers being transmitted is reduced resulting in an observed energy reduction of 10%. We will be scaling up our trial on 4G BTS in 2018.
StarHub is working on a strategy with targets which aims to reduce the impact of our activity, while providing solutions to the environmental challenges of our times using digital technology.
Our Environmental Strategy
Reducing waste generation, through reduction, recycling and reuse
Energy Consumption & Emissions
Striving for energy-efficient operations and adopting energy-efficient technologies, while consistently monitoring and implementing initiatives to reduce energy consumption
Innovative paths to reducing carbon footprints, raising awareness and promoting action by employees
Together with employees, customers and business partners, we supported several community outreach initiatives that promote social and economic integration.
Sustainability Objective 02
Social and Digital
We believe that StarHub can play an important role in helping young people gain the skills required to thrive within the global digital economy through our community investment. Our networks and services play a critically important role in hundreds of millions of people’s lives, empowering individuals and enhancing businesses. However, we also recognise the consequences of digital disruption from an employment perspective, hence we believe we should do what we can to help ensure employability and bridge the digital divide.
