A study commissioned by the BIPT shows that sustainability is a major theme for the Belgian telecom operators. During the 2018-2021 period their energy consumption dropped by 11% and the CO2 emissions by 38%.

Among other things, operators are also working on reusing and recycling set-top boxes and modems to reduce the waste mountain.
