Get into the habit of sorting your e-mails as soon as you receive them. You will identify the excess e-mails to delete more easily.

Clear out your spam folder

Spam is the main cause of an overloaded mailbox. To remove it permanently, unsubscribe at the bottom of the newsletters that you receive.

Les actions d'Orange
E-mails et économies d'énergie

If all Orange employees remove 50 old unnecessary mails, it is as if we turned 2 million energy-saving bulbs for 1 hour.


Lighting the Eiffel Tower consumes 580,000 kWh annually, which translates into an average of 1,589 kWh every day. If each Orange employee deleted 50 unimportant emails, we could turn the Eiffel Tower’s lighting off one day a month for an entire year.

1,393,712 is the number of supports that we have to collect by the "e-cleaning days" module so to reach off the city of Paris for 15 minutes.
