Environment Management System – information on ISO 14001 at T‑Mobile Polska
T‑Mobile Polska has received an Environmental Management System certificate compliant with ISO 14001 within the “Supervision of construction and operation of base stations for mobile networks”. In the headquarters in Warsaw, we supervise the construction and operation of base stations of mobile network operated by a separate joint venture – Networks!
Our Certificate of Environmental Management System (PDF, 664 KB) serves as concrete evidence of our commitment to environmental protection. Obtaining the ISO 14001 certificate was a unique event for T‑Mobile Polska, as it became the first telecommunication operator in Central and Eastern Europe to receive such confirmation of controlling the impact of their activities on the environment. Possession of the ISO 14001 certificate means that the construction and operation of the T‑Mobile network is fully controlled at every stage of development and operation, and that the negative impact on the environment is minimized.
Thanks to constant improvement, T‑Mobile Polska meets the highest global standards in the construction and operation of mobile phone networks with the utmost carefor the environment. T‑Mobile Polska has made a commitment to minimize the environmental impact caused by the installation and operation of T‑Mobile and Heyah mobile phone networks. As the main environmental aspects, the following were selected: supervision of base stations and other network elements that are a source of electromagnetic emissions, and proper use and disposal of batteries. By the supervision of base stations and other T‑Mobile and Heyah network elements, we mean design, construction and operation which guarantees the preservation of specified electromagnetic levels from the point of view of environmental protection.
One of the results of receiving the certificate of ISO 14001 and the introduction of our environmental policy was being awarded the Polish Ecology Pantheon Award by the Minister of the Environment and the Director of the Polish Centre for Testing and Certification, which T‑Mobile Polska received in 2001 at the POLEKO International Fair in Poznań. T‑Mobile Polska strives to take environmental issues into account at every stage of decision-making and strategy planning so we can easily balance the economic and technological tasks with future environmental protection. Our modern and efficient environmental management system brings a number of benefits and provides an opportunity to adapt the Polish compliance assessment system to European requirements. It also serves as sort of a passport to a modern and united Europe.
In all of our activities, we follow the belief that in this era of the new century we need to protect nature through the conscious use of its resources, which for us means using the Environmental Management System compliant with ISO 14001, proving very effective now.
From March 3rd 2015 T‑Mobile Poland joined the ISO 14001 Umbrella certification system of Deutsche Telekom Group. This allows increased transparency in the area of environmental protection and sustainable development within the DT Group.
