Sustainability – let's get there together
BT’s plan for a cleaner future is collaborative, always-on and driven by digital. Are you in?
“What can we do?”
No sustainability question matters more. We don’t have all the answers – but we know that by joining customers and suppliers on the shared journey to net zero, we’ll all get there faster.
So, what is BT Enterprise doing to reduce our impact on the planet, what have we done already, and what’s next?
The BT Manifesto
Creating a brighter, more sustainable future
Our BT Manifesto holds us to account and makes sure we live up to our purpose ‘We connect for good’ – our promise to create a brighter, more sustainable future. By 2030, we’ll be a circular business. That means extending the life cycle of products; reshaping and keeping materials in the game for as long as possible. Sharing, repairing, refurbishing and recycling.
We're committed to helping our customers reduce CO2 emissions by 60 million tonnes by March 2030. Impossible to picture, but possible to achieve through responsible, forward thinking digital products and services. And that's just the start.
We can’t get there alone. But together, the global tech sector can prevent 8.5 gigatonnes of CO2e emissions in the next eight years. For companies like us, that means using our scale, stature and innovation to make the connections that bring real change.
We’re working with iOpt and their award-winning IoT (Internet of Things) platform to improve conditions for tenants – reducing maintenance costs and engineer visits – as part of our ‘Smart Places’ IoT portfolio.

How we're helping
Reduce emissions... by going digital
Video calls and remote working probably still play some role in your post-lockdown workplace – and the environmental wins are real. Enterprise helps customers do the things they do in the office at home, with solutions like Microsoft Teams, MiCloud and Cloud Work keeping non-essential travel, non-essential.
Reduce energy use... with cloud alternatives
More and more workplaces are retiring old, energy-hungry tech and going virtual. By shaking off the burden of powering and cooling old infrastructure, we can help you reduce power usage, carbon emissions and spending all in one go.
Cut waste... by rethinking and refurbishing
Think eSIM cards that are downloaded – not produced, packaged and discarded. Refurbished handsets which perform like new. Devices taken back by us to be recycled, reused or resold. We’re also committed to removing all single-use plastics and using only recycled materials for new BT product packaging and devices by the end of March 2023. Small, manageable changes on their own – but each one a worthwhile contribution to the bigger picture.
