Telstra | Sep 07, 2017


Telstra’s Bigger Picture 2017 Sustainability Report details the evolution of its sustainability strategy, and highlights a series of ‘firsts’ for Australia’s leading telecommunications and technology company. Twenty years ago Telstra was one of the first corporates in Australia to introduce a Disability Action Plan, this year the company launched its first Accessibility and Inclusion Plan – marking a shift in focus from disability to accessibility. The new approach strengthens Telstra’s commitment to removing barriers to access through harnessing the power of technology. In releasing the report, Telstra provides details of a review of its sustainability approach, along with a new multi-year sustainability strategy that represents the maturation of Telstra’s sustainability agenda.

Some of the highlights of the report include:

  • Keeping over 1 million vulnerable customers connected
  • Reducing greenhouse emissions intensity by 68 per cent from a baseline year of FY14
  • Reaching more than 63,000 people through digital literacy programs
