Telecom Fiji Limited is committed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions through the introduction of energy efficient technologies replacing legacy equipment consuming more energy.

Telecom Fiji chief executive, Mothilal De Silva, said this was part of the company’s corporate social responsibility which is to create a greener Fiji.

Mr De Silva said to accomplish this, they are even prepared to share infrastructure with other companies, even with their competitors.

“Under the ongoing expansion programmes planned for 2015, we will be able to reduce power at least by 20 per cent,” he said.

Sharing happiness

Meanwhile, Telecom Fiji, in partnership with Brother International (NZ), this week handed over Brother brand office equipment to nine charity organisations.

These are organisation who serve the disadvantaged and the disabled people in the country.

Mr De Silva said their aim was to build an inclusive digital Fiji making Fijians happy and flourish.

He said some of their testimonies for commitment to their mission to bridge the digital divide includes providing satellite communication in far-flung corners of Fiji.

“Also laying a 450 kilometres long fibre rings connecting all the hot spots in Viti Levu and Vanua Levu,” he said.

Mr De Silva said they are continually upgrading the speed and capacity of Broadband in keeping with the exponential growth of digital use in Fiji.

The Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Rosy Akbar said: “Years ago, corporate social responsibility used to be a charity initiative.

“This involved collecting money or organising volunteers for a local charity.”

She noted this has now changed.
