Uganda: MTN Uganda Takes a Stride Towards Sustainability With the Adoption of Electric Vehicles to Its Fleet

MTN Uganda has taken a significant step towards a greener future by receiving a test electric vehicle from Motorcare Uganda Ltd. This milestone aligns with MTN’s ambitious goals outlined in the Ambition 2025 strategy, focusing on creating shared value and placing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles at the core of its operations.

The introduction of a test electric vehicle into MTN Uganda’s fleet signifies a crucial advancement in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to the global fight against climate change. Recognizing the urgency of transitioning away from fossil fuel-based vehicles in the face of rising temperatures and their consequences, MTN Uganda aims to gradually replace its entire fleet with electric vehicles, subject to the success of the test phase.

By embracing sustainable practices, MTN Uganda is determined to fulfill its pledge to achieve net-zero emissions by 2040, as outlined in its sustainability framework. The company remains dedicated to improving energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and enhancing water and waste management across its operations. Through its partnership with Motorcare Uganda Ltd, MTN can leverage advanced sustainable technologies that align with its net-zero objectives.

MTN Uganda has a proven track record of prioritizing ESG practices, exemplified by its eco-responsibility commitment. Transitioning over 64% of its sites to hydroelectricity has already resulted in a remarkable 4.4% reduction in carbon emissions (tCO2). The company firmly believes in managing environmental resources sustainably for the benefit of all.
