Join TCA’s Webinar: Improving the Environmental Credentials of the SIM Industry

Although strong progress has been made toward decarbonising the mobile sector, the fact remains that telecommunications is an energy-intensive industry. According to analysts, the ICT industry currently represents 3% to 4% of global CO2 emissions and telcos make up 1.6% of those emissions.

The sustainable transformation of practices, processes, products and services must remain a high priority on the road to Net Zero 2050. For operators, this involves examining how their supply chains support or hinder their sustainability goals. The decarbonisation of the mobile industry will require a transition to more sustainable materials and practices across the entire supply chain.

Throughout this journey, stakeholders must incorporate multiple strategies into their sustainability roadmap and continue to search for and adopt new means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It means carefully scrutinising how Scope 3 emissions can be reduced at every step in the supply chain, and searching for ways to recoup the cost of sourcing recycled materials, transition to sustainable packing and packaging, choose greener shipping methods, and help educate end users on how they can play their part in the circular economy to close the loop.

Each of these initiatives represents a big undertaking; however, there are steps that the SIM industry can begin taking now to reduce its impact. In this webinar the TCA Sustainability Working Group will share real world examples of the steps the SIM industry can take to reduce CO2 emissions and material waste and play its part in driving the sustainable transformation of the connectivity industry. 

What you will learn:

  • Which tools and frameworks operators are using to measure their carbon footprint and accelerate the decarbonisation of their value chains
  • How SBTi-backed targets are placing an emphasis on the reduction of Scope 3 emissions and what is the impact of this on stakeholders in the supply chain
  • Real world examples demonstrating how SIM manufacturers and service providers can lower their CO2 emissions by reducing plastic, switching to sustainable packing and packaging, using greener shipping methods, transitioning to low-carbon power sources and promoting reuse / recycling in end-of-life.

Who should attend:

This webinar will be of interest to all stakeholders in the SIM industry supply chain, particularly operators and SIM manufacturers and service providers.

How to register:

The webinar will take place on Wednesday 29th November. Sessions will be held at 11:00 CET and 18:00 CET to accommodate different time zones, and will include a Q&A for which attendees are invited to submit questions when registering.
