Working towards our network waste target

This year, we launched Asset Marketplace, a business-to-business solution within Vodafone that allows us to re-sell and repurpose large decommissioned electrical items like masts and antennae, helping us reduce carbon emissions by not needing to purchase new items. The solution also helps save an average of 63% of expenditure versus buying new equipment. Within two months of launching Asset Marketplace, shipments – including radio equipment – were sent from Germany to Portugal and from the UK and the Netherlands to several markets in Africa. Over the next year, we plan to expand the scope of Asset Marketplace to include IT and terminals, whilst also opening up the service to partner markets.
