Orange reacts to accusations from the High Council for the climate

High Council for the Climate publishes its report

“The High Council for the climate seems to forget the emissions avoided by the digital“, defend the officials of the Orange group after the HCC report warned of the greenhouse gas emissions caused by 5G.

In a report released yesterday, the High Council for the Climate (HCC) warned of the adverse effects of 5G on the environment. The document asserts that the deployment of this new technology risks “significantly” increasing the greenhouse gas emissions of digital as well as the consumption of electricity in the country.

The managers of Orange, one of the four major operators currently deploying the 5G network in France, were quick to react.

“The High Council for the Climate seems to forget in its report the emissions avoided by digital technology. Remember that one tonne of C02 emitted by digital technology is ten tonnes avoided in other sectors. That changes everything!” quickly tweeted Stéphane Richard, Chairman, and CEO of Orange.
