Singtel’s net-zero goal to be brought forward to 2045 from 2050

The telco firm said it is progressing with its net-zero target.

Singapore Telecommunications (Singtel) declared that it reduced energy consumption, improved energy efficiency, and increased the proportion of electricity consumption to accomplish its green targets.

It also converted 30% of its Singapore fleet to EVs and rolled out EVs in Australia.

Solar photovoltaics systems totalling 1.38MWp across four of our locations in Singapore and retired 55,450 renewable energy certificates across both Singapore and Australia.

It also cut overall emissions for Scope 1 and Scope 2 by 11.3%, surpassing the sustainability performance target for the year. It also has seen a 56.2% drop in our scope 3 emissions year-on-year.

5G adoption

Despite disruptions in 2020, Singtel built fast and reliable 5G networks. Singapore was the first country to be covered by nationwide standalone 5G in July 2022. 

In Australia, Optus shifted to its 3,000th 5G site this year.

Singtel 5G adoption and innovation were easier and faster due to the introduction of Singtel Paragon, the industry’s first all-in-one orchestration platform for 5G edge computing and cloud service. 

“This has helped spur the use of our 5G solutions across manufacturing, healthcare, logistics, and other mission-critical sectors,” it said.
