BERNAMA on 5th August has reported as such - DiGi To Reduce Carbon Emissions By 17 Per Cent. Now you may be wondering how a telecommunication company like DiGi can help the environment by reducing carbon dioxide emission into the atmosphere, but it seems possible anyway. We all know that carbon dioxide is the main gas emitted from the human activities, a main contributor to the global warming, causing climate change and temperature rising.

In Malaysia, 525 tonnes of CO2 are emitted for every 1GwH of power generated in which of all, DiGi emitted about 70,000 tonnes of CO2 in 2007.

Therefore, DiGi will invest RM100 million in its Deep Green program to reduce the CO2 emissions by 17% in the next 6 to 12 months. The program which will span over three years would see DiGi reducing its carbon emissions by half. According to Johan Dennelind, DiGi’s CEO – the information, communication and technology industry are set to surpass the aviation industry as a major contributor of carbon emissions by 2012. Deep Green is the company’s corporate program that extends beyond the community relations.

Now, go to DiGi’s Deep Green site and pledge your vow to save our mother nature. Not only by caring for our environment by reduce energy consumption or recycling our wastage, but we need to do our part for more.

Just see how DiGi does their part on it:

But what about you?
