Radio waves or Electro Magnetic Fields have great importance in our line of work. All mobile networks and phones cannot work without them, therefore the Orange group established a new website especially to introduce this subject and answer all your key questions.
The website is in four languages. We invite you to visit it here:
The sun heats the earth through solar radiation. Some of this energy is then radiated from the earth back into space in the form of infrared radiation. Gases in the atmosphere, known as 'greenhouse gases'
Of the so-called 'greenhouse' gases, carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most significant. Others include methane, nitrogen oxides and chlorofluorocarbons.
However, over the last 200 years the industrialized world has been producing an increasing concentration of the gases that cause the greenhouse effect, leading to fears of a long-term change in global climate.
Energy like Electricity gas and oil are example of energy generated by burning fossil fuels, which releases CO2 that contributes to global warming, concentration of CO2 in atmosphere is increasing and impacts earth's average temperature and changes in global weather pattern. Orange use energy to power its network, offices and shops. Also is pursuing optimizing energy use as it is good for the environment, reduces cost and is integral to business efficiency.
Waste is generated by our network engineering operations, distribution center, shops, offices and customer communication centers.
We ensure that our waste is sent to appropriately licensed facilities. Looking ahead, our priority is to reduce waste at source, and re-use or recycle waste materials where possible.
We have established a comprehensive recycling system throughout our major buildings - including Shredded Paper Recycling: Shredding and packing waste paper resulting from daily office work, to know Mobile waste battery collection and recycling - Orange concluded an agreement to recycle the waste mobile phone batteries in Egypt, to know more about Mobile waste battery collection and recycling.
Mobile waste battery collection and recycling - Orange concluded an agreement to recycle the waste mobile phone batteries in Egypt, to know more about Mobile waste battery collection and recycling.
With targets for office waste recycling and plans to include a number of other identified waste streams.
We are involved in several initiatives to reduce wastes:
Block infrared radiation from escaping back into space by re-radiating it back to the surface. These gases act as a blanket to trap heat and keep the planet some 30°C warmer than it would otherwise be. The 'natural greenhouse effect' is essential to sustain life.
It is predicted and almost agreed that temperatures will rise in the range of 1-3.5°C by the end of the 21st Century if no action is taken to limit greenhouse gas emissions. This could affect the whole pattern of the world's weather, and increase the frequency and intensity of storms, floods, heat waves droughts and an attendant rise of 20cm in global mean sea levels by 2030.
The 'greenhouse effect' describes the infrared radiation reflected from the Earth that becomes trapped in the upper atmosphere by a blanket of gases. It's a natural phenomenon, which makes the Earth's surface sufficiently warm to sustain life.
