Orange Polska is Poland's leading telecommunication provider, operating in all segments of the Polish telecom market and holding licences for 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2100 MHz and 2600 MHz frequencies. Spectrum is a scarce and unique natural capital, to which access is regulated at the national and European Union level. Our access to the spectrum required for rendering telco services is at the regulator's discretion. The amount of spectrum that is at our disposal influences the competitiveness and quality of the services we render.
Expansion of the telecommunications infra- structure in response to the growing demand for information ow entails higher demand for electrical energy in our industry. We manage natural resources efficiently, monitoring the consumption of energy and other resources, as well as carbon dioxide emissions related to our operations.
In order to compensate for this environmentally unfriendly trend, we take steps to optimise energy consumption. We also reduce electricity consumption through replacement of older technical devices with modern energy efficient ones, modernization of cooling systems, introduction of energy saving functionalities, and so on.
