Airtel fails to grab opportunity to become a clean corporate leader: Greenpeace India
New Delhi, June 10(ANI): The talks between Greenpeace and telecom giant Airtel today failed as the telecom operator refused to commit to a timeline to disclose its carbon emissions and phase out diesel from its telecom tower operations.
"In a clear case of hiding behind the industry association and desisting from taking responsibility, the senior management representatives of the telecom giant along with those from Indus Towers (an Airtel joint venture), Bharti Infratel (Bharti Airtel's fully owned subsidiary) and Cellular Operator Association of India (COAI), said COAI would report to Greenpeace in three months on possible areas of cooperation," Greenpeace India said in a statement.
Greenpeace delegation was led by Campaign Director Divya Raghunandan, Campaigners Abhishek Pratap, Mrinmoy Chattaraj and Amrin Shaikh.
"It is unfortunate that Airtel failed to agree to our demands and thus there was no headway in the meeting. We are urging the company to reconsider its stand on the issue and come out clean in the public," said Divya Raghunandan, Campaign Director, Greenpeace India. (ANI)
