Our global commitment

Since many years, Eltel is committed to a number of sustainability frameworks. Together with stakeholder dialogue on the relevant topics used to shape our strategic decision-making, this provides the road map to remain relevant as a partner, employer and investment opportunity.


Science Based Targets initiative (2021)

Eltel has announced its commitment to set science-based targets for significant reductions in our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030. Eltel’s targets are being developed and will be validated against the latest climate science by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).


CDP Climate Change

CDP Climate Change (2016)

Eltel reports to the CDP Climate Change programme every year and has done so since 2016.
