 As part of its sustainability initiatives, Vodafone India instituted definite mechanisms to measure and report carbon emissions. It resulted in 10-per cent reduction in diesel consumption and thus leading to a tangible outcome of 8,50,000 tonnes reduction in CO 2 in all cell sites owned by the company in the year 2011-12.
