Towards a responsible digital future in line with international climate objectives 

Digital technology has a significant impact on the environment and society. Operators must therefore transform their activities throughout their value chain. This can involve establishing a decarbonization trajectory, creating new circular models, or providing solutions that help reduce the environmental impact of their customers. They also have a key role to play in preventing negative social and societal impacts, such as the risks of addiction or cyberbullying, all while enabling secure, sustainable access to the digital world for as many people as possible.

Orange’s response  

Guided by our “ESG by design” orientation, we are gradually decarbonizing our activities and helping our customers to reduce the CO₂ emissions linked to their use of telecoms and digital technology. Furthermore, our corporate role and our CSR strategy lead us to work for environmental protection and digital inclusion, as well as the development of digital trust, while mobilizing the resources necessary for our missions.
