Environmental ManagementAn environmental management unit was established to plan and implement environmental activities. Here, our impact on the environment is documented, evaluated and if necessary, appropriate measures are taken. Our environmental team plans and designs concrete projects. The results and progress made are documented in our annual environmental and sustainability reports.
In summer 2004 an environmental management system went into effect in the fixed net according to the international norm ISO 14001 and was certified in autumn 2004. The system aims to continually improve environmental performance in the area of the fixed net, and the goals are clearly defined: to continually reduce the negative impact on the environment and to ensure careful use of natural resources.
