Nokia Siemens Networks has gotten into a global deal with global conservation organization WWF. Under this partnership Nokia will concentrate on growing the environmental awareness within its team and several other important shareholders.
Over the next three years Nokia Siemens Networks and WWF will work closely on several significant initiatives, which include apt knowledge on environmental matters. WWF will also offer an external view and direction on the company’s environmental activities.
Training workshops, global web campaigns and other environment-related information sharing for Nokia Siemens Networks employees, along with communication and seminars aimed at other Nokia Siemens Networks stakeholders, will be conducted under this project.
Juha-Erkki Mäntyniemi, head of environmental affairs at Nokia Siemens Networks said, “Our employees wish to make a personal contribution and help the environment in their daily lives and together with WWF we can support them to achieve this goal. We can also help increase internal awareness of the innovations and investments Nokia Siemens Networks has put into environmentally sustainable solutions that decrease the environmental footprint of humankind by better use of technology.” Adding, “With its long history and know-how on environmental matters WWF is the perfect partner for us also in providing an expert view on the status of our environmental activities.”
“We see this cooperation with Nokia Siemens Networks as a positive step towards reducing the ecological footprint of the information & communication technologies sector,” noted Jean-Paul Jeanrenaud, Director of Business & Industry relations at WWF International. “The company’s environmental policy already demonstrates good progress in this area. Through our partnership, we aim to help strengthen environmental awareness within Nokia Siemens Networks in order to enable the company to drive towards greater sustainability in its business activities”.
The main intention behind the partnership between Nokia Siemens Networks and WWF is to learn from each other and to make easy active dialogue and activities that will benefit the environment.
