A pioneer in carbon neutrality
On the environmental front, Bernard Borghei, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Operations at Vertical Bridge, explained that the company was the first tower operator in the world to become carbon neutral certified in June 2020, in accordance with the CarbonNeutral Protocol, the leading global framework for carbon neutrality.
To achieve this, the company undertook a rigorous assessment of its carbon footprint, including energy consumed by offices, operation and construction of towers and business travel. The company is also supporting four projects in North America to offset its unavoidable carbon emissions, including one in British Columbia.
