FTTH Carbon Footprint Cooperative Platform

A new platform where companies can share ESG best practices, build a database of detailed carbon intensity information for all products (essential for the accuracy of Scope 3 reporting), and receive preferential access to the expertise and tools of a consultant for organisations measuring their carbon emissions for the first time.

 

 

Get your organisation ready for the next ESG obligations

With this new initiative, the FTTH Council Europe aims at helping all companies involved in the FTTH value chain to measure accurately their carbon footprint and reduce their green house gas emissions.

Why does it matter?

Beyond a societal issue, reducing the environmental impact of our activity on the planet becomes a competitive issue. Evaluating the carbon emissions on which your company depends not only allows you to anticipate the risks for your activity but also to differentiate yourself and thus maintain or develop your business.

Your clients or investors are probably already asking you to report your carbon footprint or those of your products. The European Union has just made reporting compulsory (CSRD) for large organisation from 2024 and it will be extended to all SMEs by 2026, and your organisation needs to be ready on time.

How do we help?

The FTTH Council Europe, as a non profit organisation regrouping all stakeholders of the FTTH value chain, is in a unique position to propose a platform where companies can share ESG best practices, build a database of detailed carbon intensity information for all products (essential for the accuracy of Scope 3 reporting), and offer preferential access to the services of a consultant and a tool for organisations measuring their carbon emissions for the first time.

We have also developed a sector observatory which will track the progresses of our industry and will be communicated to policymakers.

We believe that cooperation between all stakeholders of our industry is key to helping us individually and collectively reduce our carbon emissions and that this is also the most time- and cost-effective way for organisation to adapt their processes.

Joining the initiative means embarking in a journey, not buying a service “off the shelves”. We are committed to adjust the program, taking into accounts the needs of all participants and the evolution of the regulatory context. We need participants to be willing to share data and experiences, thisis a prerequisite for the success of this initiative.

Who can join the platform?

All companies active in Europe and providing FTTH network-related products and services.

Member companies of the FTTH Council Europe enjoy reduced fees. The program is also open to non members of the FTTH Council Europe.

In alignment
with global
sustainability goals

“The FTTH Council Carbon Footprint project is a valuable initiative supporting the FTTH sector companies to meet the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive requirements.

The carbon footprint reduction, apart from climate change mitigation, provide other important benefits like, improvement of operational efficiency, enhancement of corporate reputation and competitiveness"

Scope 3 reporting
in a simple and
streamlined way

"Prior to SIRO’s participation in the FTTH carbon footprint initiative, SIRO had only calculated our scope 1 and scope 2 emissions. As part of the project we successfully built our first scope 3 greenhouse gas inventory in a simple and streamlined way.


Through our participation in the project, we were confident that we captured the correct information, with the highest level of certainty possible. Scope 3 emissions account for over 95% of SIRO’s overall carbon footprint, so it was really important to us that we calculate this correctly to identify priority areas for emissions reduction in our supply chain"

Sustainability Specialist at SIRO
