Orange, from COP21 to COP26

COP23 chaired by Fiji Islands is being held in Bonn from 6 to 17 November. Two years after Paris Agreement, the director of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) is worried about global climate action: " Governments, private sector, civil society must bridge this catastrophic gap ". The urgency is there: the climate change that was a threat to future generations has become a reality for ours. The time is now up for action. For its part, in its sector of the telecom industry, Orange has been conducting a proactive environmental policy for more than 10 years.

As part of the UN initiatives, within the ITU (International Telecommunication Union) or the non-governmental actors platform of the Global Climate Action Agenda, and of course in all sectors of its activity, Orange is totally committed to the energy and ecological transition. At COP21 in Paris in 2015, and in Marrakech the following year, we announced and reaffirmed ambitious targets for reducing our CO2 emissions and integrating the circular economy into our organization and processes. With the 2020 COP26 in mind, where we will have to report on the achievement of our objectives, this COP23 is an opportunity to take stock of some of our actions. Project review.
