Data Point – Green is Good for Business: Making the P&L Case

Data Point - Green is Good for Business: Making the P&L Case

The financial case for going green in telecoms is about lower costs and higher revenues. Costs are a focal point, as energy is still a stubbornly high burden on profit and loss, at 20-40% of opex for the average operator.

The shift to renewables will help reduce this – but it takes time, so energy efficiencies are a priority. The green revenue story is less developed but equally important. This applies in the consumer segment (e.g. device-recycling schemes or bundling energy into mobile and/or broadband tariffs) and in the enterprise segment as part of digitisation programmes.

This Datapoint from Tim Hatt, expands on a recent report we published on the topic, which we expect to hear more on with COP28 approaching in December.
