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:
- Incorporating environmental criteria into our waste management contracts whenever possible.
- Establishing a data collection system so that we can monitor waste quantities and set targets.
- Reuse and recycle resources where possible.
- Integrate environmental considerations into business decisions.
- Educate employees, customers about environmental issues and encourage them to take a more active role.
- Using bio degradable paper scratch cards instead of plastic cards.
- Expanding the use of E-recharging, also known as Over The Air charging. This solution solves the problem of scratch card waste altogether. Know more about E-recharging.
- Replacing current Freon R12 air conditioning gas with an environmentally friendly Freon R134A in all central systems and ensuring our diesel tanks are all protected against leakage or spills.
- Encourage the use of communication technology like video conferencing or content sharing rather than business travel at all times.
