Our journey to sustainability

Our journey to sustainability

Together we can change the world. Want to join us?
We've heard the cry: Mother Earth needs our help. Not sure where to start? We've got you covered.
The challenge
Everything we do creates carbon, from the devices we use, the way we travel, the clothes we wear and the food we eat. Excessive carbon emissions prevent the planet from healing itself, which leads to global warming and other side effects we don't want to see.
What we're doing about it
We can solve this problem together. Our pledge is to embed sustainability in the DNA of our products and services to protect the environment. This is our commitment - to build a better tomorrow.

What is sustainability?

Sustainability is the practice of not causing any harm to the environment by making mare conscious choices in our daily lives. Our pledge is to embed sustainability in our products and services. One of the actions we are taking is offsetting our carbon emissions. We will be sharing with you what we are doing to lower our carbon footprint, and give you tips on how to reduce your impact on the environment.

What is Virgin Mobile UAE's Sustainability strategy?

There are many things that can be done to become more sustainable. At Virgin Mobile, we focus on implementing organisational processes to directly reduce our carbon footprint. Any remaining footprint that cannot be directly reduced will be offset through green partnerships locally and internationally.

Virgin Mobile is committed to greatly minimise its environmental impact by participating in two initiatives:

  1. LFG flaring project in Dubai: a project in waste handling and disposal, in which the aim is to reduce the amount of Methane emitted by landfills. Click for more information

  2. UK Tree planting project: a great way to offset carbon emissions is by planting trees, as trees absorb carbon dioxide through photosynthesis to produce oxygen and wood. Virgin Mobile will be participating in this initiative, and you can also contribute! Click for more information

By sponsoring activities that reduce carbon, we can reverse the impact of excessive carbon created in our daily lives.
