Supporting the energy transition
In a world of limited natural resources, businesses will only be able to ensure their long-term survival by dint of constant efforts to control their energy consumption and preserve a fragile climate balance. Orange has committed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 20% between 2006 and 2020. This is a real challenge within the context of rapidly growing usage and the relentless increase in data traffic.
Our plan of action concerns not only our technical infrastructure, but also our premises, and the way we travel and work. And we are going even further, acting as a player in energy transition, to bring our customers our expertise and technology as we search today for answers to the energy and ecology issues of tomorrow.
Acting on all emission sources
Cutting our CO2 emissions means dealing with all sources of energy consumption linked to our operations and seeking optimal energy efficiency through every innovative means at our disposal.

A player in energy transition
In addition to cutting its direct energy consumption, Orange is also striving to reduce its indirect impacts in connection with its customers’ use of its products and services. Through eco-design, environmental labelling, and innovative solutions, we can help our customers reduce their carbon footprint. Which means that Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can play a major role in combating climate change via solutions designed to encourage teleworking, paperless procedures, and smart management of buildings, networks and cities.
Orange is firmly committed alongside key players, NGOs and governments by putting its technology at the service of climate-driven innovation. The Group is involved, for example, in COP21, the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC, which will bring together 194 states to discuss climate-related issues in Paris in 2015.
