Sprint Sets Goal Of Cutting GHG Emissions 15%
Sprint has set its sights on reducing its total greenhouse gas emissions 15 percent by 2017.
Sprint’s efforts to reduce its GHG emissions will be two-fold: Reducing overall energy demand, and increasing the use of renewable energy by having at least 10 percent of the company’s energy come from renewable sources by 2017.
The company says that efforts are already underway to achieve these goals: In addition to using and experimenting with renewable energy in its networks, approximately 75 percent of the power for Sprint’s 200-acre Overland Park, Kan., campus is sourced from a Spearville, Kan., wind farm.
As an EPA Climate Leader partner, the company commits to reducing their impact on the global environment by completing a corporate-wide inventory of their greenhouse gas emissions based on a quality management system, setting aggressive reduction goals, and annually reporting their progress to the EPA.
Last year, the company anounced that hydrogen fuel cells had been deployed at more than 200 Sprint cell sites across the country.
