Tele2 joins Exponential Roadmap Initiative for collaboration towards net zero

Stockholm, Sweden – Tele2 AB (“Tele2”) (Nasdaq Stockholm: TEL2 A and TEL2 B) has joined the Exponential Roadmap Initiative that brings together companies from various sectors with common missions to halve emissions by 2030 to reach net-zero emissions before 2050.

With its foundation in science, promoting the “Carbon Law” to halve emissions every decade, the Exponential Roadmap Initiative points the direction for how to build a stronger, more resilient and future-proof global economy while at the same time increasing human prosperity and health. 

"Never has it been more important for companies to collaborate towards the common global goal reducing greenhouse gas emissions. By joining the Exponential Roadmap Initiative, we will strengthen our ambitious approach as well as support others to take the step towards a net-zero world. Becoming a member and collaborating through the Exponential Roadmap Initiative is a commitment to achieve Tele2s ambitious goals," said Erik Wottrich, Head of Sustainability at Tele2.

"We are proud to welcome Tele2 to the Exponential Roadmap Initiative. Tele2 is named #1 climate leader in Europe by The Financial Times, but ambitions do not end there. We look forward to collaborating on taking supplier engagement, renewable energy and circularity and the telecom sector to a higher level together. Upon joining Exponential Roadmap Initiative Tele2 is not only establishing a platform for collaboration, but also ensuring quality and strength of our approach, ambitions and strategy by confirming our alignment with the criteria of the UN-backed Race to Zero campaign," said Johan Falk, Head of Exponential Roadmap Initiative.

The Exponential Roadmap Initiative is an accredited partner of UN-backed Race to Zero campaign, and a founding partner of the 1.5°C Supply Chain Leaders and the SME Climate Hub. In 2018 the Exponential Roadmap report was launched, highlighting 36 solutions that have exponential scaling potential to halve global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. At the World Economic Forum in Davos in 2020 the 1.5°C Business Playbook was presented, based on the Exponential Roadmap report.
