MEA unit of Virgin Mobile achieves net zero carbon emissions in 2021

The telecom company teamed up with Dubai Carbon Center of Excellence to gather data on its operations to calculate its total emissions


DUBAI: Virgin Mobile Middle East and Africa said it has achieved net zero carbon emissions across all its operations in 2021, supported by its ban on single-use plastic in Saudi Arabia.

The telecom company teamed up with Dubai Carbon Center of Excellence to gather data on its operations to calculate its total emissions.

Companies in the region are showing increased consciousness about their carbon emissions, inspired by a global movement towards sustainability. Governments in the Gulf are trying to do the same.

Virgin Mobile previously banned single-use plastic in Oman and Saudi Arabia, eliminating more than 50 tonnes of single-use plastic across the region.

Other sustainable practices have been implemented in the company’s offices, including policies on business travel, energy use, and environmental awareness for its employees.
