Ericsson set to reduce CO2 emissions 30% per employee by 2017

By Editor


In 2013, Ericsson was able to reduce CO2 emissions by 10 percent per employee, and it aims to achieve a reduction of 30 percent per employee by 2017.

The above figures were revealed in its 21st Sustainability  and Corporate Responsibility report. Highlights of the report include a solidified approach to responsible business including rigorous compliance processes; energy efficient solutions from the company’s product portfolio; and extended reach in providing access to communication for all, including refugees and students in remote areas.

Ericsson Psi Coverage Solution, introduced last year, and Ericsson Radio Dot System were some of the products that deliver on Ericsson’s commitment to sustainability.


Psi Coverage Solution uses a single radio unit to provide the same 3G coverage as an ordinary base station equipped with three radio units. Psi Coverage Solution has been deployed across 11 markets during 2013 and has proven to reduce power consumption by 40 percent.

Ericsson Radio Dot System, which revolutionizes indoor coverage, reduces power requirements by more than 50 percent compared to traditional Distributed Antenna Systems, and prolongs battery life of end-user devices used in enterprise environments, the company said.

Ericsson has set an objective to positively impact 2.5 million people directly through our Technology for Good initiatives by 2016.

Commenting on the report, Hans Vestberg, president and CEO, Ericsson, said, “Sustainability is increasingly integrated into our business strategy. I firmly believe that our commitment to sustainability and CR enhances our competitiveness, and the actions we take today will enable positive business outcomes in the future.”
