  1. Environmental futuresIan Hill, Chief Sustainability Officer, Openreach The contents of all the slides presented today are provided for guideline and discussion purposes only and represent no commitment from BT

  2. Contents • Climate change & the ICT industry • Openreach activities • Ethernet & the environment

  3. Sector Winner 2001 – 2008 The quest for excellence Sector Winner 2007 - 2008

  4. 385ppm 285ppm 200ppm 18°C 15°C 7°C 300ppm 200ppm average temperature of earth carbon dioxide level in atmosphere -400,000 -300,000 -200,000 -100,000 today Source: Carbon Sense

  5. 50% global reduction on 1990 levels by 2050 50% reduction = 450ppm CO2= 2oC temp rise Average world GDP growth at constant prices (1980 to 2007) = 3.6% pa Decoupling of world CO2e emissions from economy (1990 to 2007) = 2.4% pa Net business as usual growth of world CO2e emissions = 1.2 % pa

  6. Total greenhouse gas emission pathways 80 2025 peak 2020 peak 60 2015 peak 40 Emissions of greenhouse gases (GtCO2e) 20 0 2000 2020 2040 2060 2080 2100 Year Anderson & Bows. 2008 Philosophical Transactions A of the Royal Society. 366. pp.3863-3882

  7. The weather is changing • Average temperatures rising, with more extreme heat waves • Rainfall patterns are changing with increased risks of flooding • Ground conditions are changing (landslides, subsidence and heave) • Glaciers are melting • Permafrost is thawing • Sea levels are rising • Storm surge heights are increasing • Intensity of storms is increasing

  8. The ICT industry & climate changeRisk & opportunity Global value of saved energy and carbon = >€640b pa by 2020 www.smart2020.org

  9. ICT industry & climate changeCarbon reduction commitment • Mandatory UK carbon trading system • Large potential penalties (and rewards) based on energy consumption performance - public league tables; • Applies to organisations with half hourly metered electricity, and who consumed over £0.5m equivalent in 2008 - 5,000 UK businesses; • Letters from the Environment Agency in July 2009 to billing addresses of relevant properties, asking organisations to identify whether or not they qualify; • Commences in April 2010, but is based on billable energy consumed during calendar 2008 and requires preparation now

  10. Openreach emissions reductionTargeted activities • Sustainability • Emission reduction • Fleet improvements • Waste reduction • Responsible product development

  11. Sustainability: Hierarchy of needs Corporate reputation & retention Disruptive market innovation & competitive advantage Physical plant &infrastructure adaptation • Legal compliance & regulation • EU Electronic Waste Directive 2002 • UK Climate Change Act 2008 • EU Emissions Targets 2020

  12. Emissions & wasteA whole ecosystem 1. Less material shipped 2. Less demand created by re-use of existing products 3. Less product deliveries 5. Fault savings = less truck rolls = less co2 4. Less gas used to shrink 6. Re-use = less landfill

  13. EmissionsNot a load of hot air! 23,500 vehicles Over 200,000,000 miles a year Over 30,000,000 litres of fuel 4-6 tonnes CO2 per annum 150 visits and c£400 per tonne

  14. Improving our fleet • Existing fleet • Smaller, lighter and more economical vehicles • New, lighter vehicle racking and equipment • For every 100kg change in vehicle weight, fuel consumption rises by 0.7l per 100km • Road speed limiters • 10% fuel challenge Low carbon fleet feasibility • Electric • Diesel electric hybrid • 30% Bio Fuel • 2-Man Tonner

  15. Openreach wasteA few throwaways BT total 80k tonnes pa >25% via TECs <45% Openreach • Every year we put intothe network: • 80,000 poles • 2m loop kms of copper • 7,000 types of engineering material £24 / tonne in 2007 £48 / tonne in 2010

  16. Total waste is reducing & recycling % has doubled 000 tonnes 34% 46% 42% 42% 26%

  17. Responsible product developmentConnectivity services:environmental benefits  150 fewer visits = 1 tonne of co2 emissions less  Removes the need for CPs to deploy additional electronics  …and co2!  Should lead to a lower industry footprint  Reduces units produced and overall power consumption  Should consume far less power than EAD electronics ► More accurate testing means less visits ► Potential to offer CPs access and managed control of service network termination electronics ► Reduced power consumption lowers costs… ► EBD moves Backhaul supply from individual point-to-point services with a per service multiple set of electronics and associated per service fibre deployment to a shared infrastructure model ► EAD Aggregation - plans to offer multiple circuit Tails through common hub site electronics and individual handover electronics ► EAD Flex - active electronics at the end user site

  18. Summary • Environmental impacts are important considerations • Underestimating them will impact business success • Our Connectivity Services portfolio evolution is already part of this future • To make a difference we need our customers on board
