Last November, StarHub’s near and long-term targets were validated and approved to meet the Science-Based Target initiative’s (SBTi) net-zero criteria. The targets include reducing absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 50% by 2030, and reducing absolute scope 1, 2, and 3 GHG emissions by 90% by 2050, from a 2021 base year. StarHub aims to reach net-zero across our value chain by 2050. Most Sustainable Wireless Telecom Provider
In 2023, 12% of StarHub’s energy use came from renewable electricity sources, and the company continues to expand its sustainability portfolio to increase renewable energy use to 30% by 2030. StarHub has secured 12,000MWh of green biomass energy annually from 2024 to 2028 enabling the company to reach this renewable energy target more cost-effectively. The company has also begun the modernization of legacy data centers and looked to optimize energy use amidst increasing operating temperatures. It is well placed to achieve its goal of obtaining a Green Mark for all owned data centers by 2026. Last year, StarHub also commenced the lease of six electric vehicles (EV) to replace internal combustion engine vehicles in its fleet to progressively convert more vehicles to EVs in the future. StarHub continues to intensify its efforts to support the global race to net zero.
