Reducing our own waste
Since 2015 all the EE contact centres and offices have not sent any waste to landfill with a renewed focus on reducing our overall waste, recycled or otherwise.
By 2025 100% of the plastic packing we use will be resuable, recyclable, compostable or removed entirely. For example, since 2016 we have reduced the packaging on our 4GEE Mobile WiFi devices by 27% and we are continuing to look for opportunities to go further.
Together with our BT customers, we also refurbished and recycled over 900,000 broadband hubs and TV boxes in 2020, saving 168 tonnes of electrical waste. That’s equivalent to 14 double decker buses.
