Energy efficiency and commitment to combating climate change

Fastweb is committed to adopting solutions that reduce the impact on the environment throughout the value chain, from buying electrical energy from renewable sources to the selection of efficient devices for our customers' homes and businesses.

We are constantly looking for solutions and innovation to improve energy efficiency and we are monitoring greenhouse gas emissions, two of the fundamental spheres of impact in telecommunications.

Energy-Saving Initiatives

100% of the energy purchased by Fastweb is produced by renewable sources. Furthermore, Fastweb has launched numerous initiatives to improve the energy efficiency of its infrastructure: the measures implemented and completed in 2018 will allow a total energy saving of approximately 4 GWh/year.

Carbon Footprint and emissions avoided

Every year, Fastweb monitors its Carbon Footprint in order to measure its environmental impact in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. The adoption of the digital and high energy efficiency solutions provided by Fastweb allows its customers to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions. As a result of the services used in 2018 alone, overall, Fastweb customers avoided emissions of 195 k tons of carbon dioxide.

Sustainability Label

With its label "Fastweb for sustainability", Fastweb identifies all the offers that allow customers to reduce their environmental impact; reducing electrical power consumption, for example, paper consumption, or travel in private or public transport. The calculation of the environmental benefit of the services identified has been "Approved by Legambiente", which has verified and validated the methodology adopted and confirmed the values indicated for each product.

Data Center

Fastweb's Milan Data centre, certified as Tier IV by the New York Uptime Institute, was carefully designed including the details regarding environmental sustainability and the focus on pollution and is powered by energy solely from renewable sources. Thanks to an innovative cooling system, it has high energy efficiency (Power Use Effectiveness PUE 1-25): every year, 3,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions are saved, the equivalent of 60 flights between Milan and Rome. The Milan data centre is among the 6% of least polluting data centres in the world. Read More
