We manage to manage our energy

CO2 neutrality is a priority for us.
And we are proving that, every single day. That’s why our CO2 emissions have dropped by almost 80% since 2006.

A less energy intense network

Our data centres. At the centre of all of our efforts

We put a lot of energy into lowering the energy we use. We are constantly evaluating the efficiency of our technical stations and data centres with a fixed network. And we adapt our systems and processes as soon as it is necessary.

Bigger, but with a smaller footprint

In 2019, we launched a new data centre that is highly energy efficient. On its own, it replaces four smaller structures.

Turning the air conditioning down

To ventilate our offices, we replaced the air conditioning with a cooling system that uses 10 times less energy. You read that right, 10 times!

Solar energy for (almost) all of our projects

Soon we will install solar panels on our antenna sites to provide power directly. If necessary, we will use additional green energy from approved suppliers.

Green energy

All of the electricity used in our offices and technical buildings is 100% green. This reduction in CO2 emissions achieved is equivalent to the consumption of 1,000 Belgians per annum.

Green ideas

At Orange, we are full of green ideas. So we installed energy-efficient light bulbs in all of our offices and solar panels on the roof. A rainwater collection system provides water for our sanitation.
