- Committing to becoming a zero-waste company;
- Developing a strategy to reduce fuel-related GHG emissions;
- Deploying green building standards across the company's real estate portfolio; and

TELUS President and CEO Darren Entwistle commented,
“Our team’s commitment to sustainability is foundational to our leadership in social capitalism. In this regard, we are dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint and minimizing our impact on the planet our children will inherit, while also creating meaningful value for our fellow citizens.”

Mr. Entwistle added that TELUS is “leveraging our world-leading technology and human compassion to help answer society’s most pressing social challenges in health, education, agriculture and the environment while improving economic equality in our digital world for generations to come.”
