Five sustainable ways the SIM industry can close the loop in the circular economy
Telecommunications is an energy-intensive industry. Operators alone account for 2-3% of total global energy consumption and the pressure to produce more innovative technologies to meet – and exceed – consumer demand continues to grow. The result of which means that the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions produced while facilitating these technological developments increases too.
