While still scoring relatively poorly overall, Telefónica moved up 10 points since the last Leaderboard with improvements in solutions and energy criteria, tying for second most improved from last year’s Leaderboard. Its overall score is dragged down by its lack of clean energy advocacy.
In order to prove its standing as a clean tech solutions provider, Telefónica needs to be more transparent on the scope of energy savings its IT solutions provide. Telefónica is not yet leveraging its own leadership in either global or national climate change policy discussions.
As this company expands into new markets, its own energy footprint will grow, increasing the importance to build this growth in renewable energy sources.
