This is Sprint’s first appearance in the Leaderboard, and Sprint debuts as the top scorer among telecommunications operators, including its potential parent company SoftBank, who was last year’s Leaderboard’s star newcomer.
This high score is a result of Sprint’s leading work on climate and energy advocacy, as well as a robust and ambitious strategy to reduce its greenhouse gas footprint. Sprint still has significant room for improvement in offering climate saving solutions. With Japan-based SoftBank aiming to acquire a 70% stake in Sprint in 2013, it will be interesting to see how the potential acquisition will impact both their respective environmental and sustainability commitments and policy advocacy.
