Sustainability and inclusion
From a practical point of view when we supply replacement on-site phone system equipment and we recover the old equipment this will be repaired if needed and re-used where possible if it’s equipment that is still current in our support base.
If it’s obsolete or not a manufacturer we use we encourage people to use the specialist telecoms recycling companies examples below or some of the many other companies offering electrical waste services;
Aside from that we always offer remote meetings rather than on-site face to face meetings where possible (as we did with you recently) to avoid non-essential journeys. The products we supply have been enabling remote working and working from home since long before the pandemic affectively forced the issue for many.

For every new connection, port or migration placed onto one of our eco-friendly VodaShare Eco tariffs, we will plant five trees.
The January update is as follows;
