In 2019 we sorted 38 % of our total waste production and thus reduced our production of greenhouse gases by 168.48 t of CO2 ekv. (14 % more year-on-year).

We set a goal for 2019 to increase its proportion of usable components sorted and separated from municipal waste to over 50 %. This goal was achieved (up to 61 %).

Our employees and customers can bring used telphones and mobile phones from homes and deposit them free of charge at workplaces and stores. Every device handed over in our stores in the Czech Republic for recycling will also support the counselling emergency number Linka bezpečí (Safety Line). This scheme eventually raised over CZK 38,000 in 2019 in addition to O2 CZ’s usual support. Every crown helps, every mobile phone counts.
