Fiber for Breakfast 2023 Week 35 – Fiber is Key to Ambitious Climate Action Plans

In this Fiber for Breakfast, hear from Nadja Turek, Director of Sustainability, about altafiber (formerly Cincinnati Bell) and Hawaiian Telcom’s unique climate action plans to reduce each company’s carbon emissions by 40% by 2030, on the road to net-zero emissions by 2040. We all need this urgency and order of magnitude reduction to meet Paris Climate Accord targets and hold global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Nadja will discuss key carbon reduction (and business efficiency and resiliency) actions, including transitioning customers from copper to fiber solutions and powering down the copper network. She also oversees the company’s climate risk assessments in the Midwest and Hawaii. In her role, Nadja works internally with the network, fleet, and real estate experts and externally with technology, community, and finance collaborators to address climate change. Nadja’s background combines environmental sustainability with mission and operational resiliency.
