Estimating your carbon thumbprint

Mobile networks in Australia are estimated to create more than a whooping half a million tonnes of CO₂ every year. Your estimated portion, which is the CO₂ created by your mobile network data usage, is your Carbon Thumbprint.

Calculate the estimated environmental impact of your mobile data use by using the Carbon Thumbprint app.

Reducing your e-waste

Globally, people binned 53 million tonnes of e-waste in 2019. And, since most e-waste contains both valuable and toxic materials, we need to bring that number down. We have five tips to help cut your e-waste (some will even help you save money – like getting a refurbished phone from the Second Life Shop).

Australia's first carbon neutral telco

Telcos help people connect in a way that can help them reduce their greenhouse gasses - but they also create a lot in the process.

We wanted to be part of the solution. So we went carbon neutral in our mobile and broadband services (certified by Climate Active in December 2019).
