For a more connected… and greener world!
Fibre is no longer just about digital: we want to go one step further in protecting the environment by creating a forest. “Happy B-day & New Born” is the name of the initiative involving the entire Open Fiber community. On the day of their birthday, or the birth or adoption of a child, every colleague receives a special e-mail. Inside, in addition to good wishes, is a link to plant their own tree. We celebrate life with life.
The goal is to plant 1,100 trees in Sicily and Cameroon by the end of this year. Treedom will handle the supply throughout the partnership. On their website, you can visit the OF forest with all the trees already allocated. A virtual journey within a growing ecosystem.
A new dream: supporting the environment and local communities
Our mission is to create a more digital and cleaner world and we are following every possible avenue to do so. This is also why we decided to invest in fibre optics, one of the most environmentally friendly technologies currently available. More efficient than copper cable, it requires less maintenance and less residue emission into the atmosphere during installation, operation, maintenance and use. Indeed, compared to other network In computer language, the term network defines a set of hardware and software devices which, when linked together, enable the exchange and sharing of resources, data or information. In a computer network, the devices that generate, route and terminate data are called network nodes. infrastructure, full-fibre networks do not require energy when not being used for transmission. However, our green vocation does not only stop with technical choices. The partnership with Treedom also allows us to make a contribution to the fight against climate change and to the livelihood of small communities in remote areas.
Digital and plant-based fibres: we are weaving the web for a greener world.
