Jun. 28 /CSRwire/ - June 28, 2007- The potential of communications: Vodafone's CR Report 2007

How can the world's leading mobile company boost economic development in developing countries?

Extending access to communications in emerging markets is at the core of Vodafone's CR strategy. Mobile payment services and the introduction of low-cost handsets are helping people reap the social and economic benefits of mobile:

  • People without a bank account can make financial transactions.
  • Migrant workers could send money home to their families.
  • Farmers can find the best price for their crops.
  • Workers can find jobs.

    Vodafone's seventh Corporate Responsibility report presents a comprehensive picture of the Company's most material issues. Vodafone's signature 'we said, we have, we will' reporting format clearly presents its performance against commitments.

    Highlights include:

  • Energy efficiency of new network equipment up by 25%.
  • Handsets collected for reuse and recycling up by 59%.
  • CR incorporated into supplier qualification process across the Group.
  • Extensive stakeholder engagement on privacy and freedom of expression.
  • Average cost of roaming calls in Europe cut by 40%.
  • Access controls in all markets with age-restricted content on Vodafone live!
