Mark Fossier, Chief Corporate Social Responsibility for Orange, outlined the company's sustainability strategy at Orange Business Live '09, which hinges on three principles:

  • Include: provide access for all (fight geographic, economic and physical exclusion); forge solidarity ties with local communities.
  • Preserve: reduce environment footprint; develop innovative solutions for the protection of the environment.
  • Care: provide security of information and protection of privacy; promote safe and responsible use of Orange products and services; act as a responsible employer; promote responsible sourcing principles.

In line with these goals, Orange is acting to reduce its own carbon footprint, of which the lion's share (around two thirds) is the result of its network equipment, with a significant proportion of the remainder coming from travel.

Options available to address networking overheads include the consolidation of infrastructure, server and storage virtualisation, and optimised cooling. The deployment of collaboration and mobility solutions will enable business travel cuts (including employee commuting).
