The rapid and inevitable progress of technology in the realm of telecommunications is having particularly beneficial outcomes for the environment. XL Axiata certainly adopts these green practices and acknowledges these environmental benefits as it plays its role in protecting the environment through expanding the telecommunications business. XL Axiata has taken responsibility by improving people's prosperity and advancing the nation through the digital world and providing direct assistance.

For this reason, we always undertake preliminary research/assessments, regarding the exigency and conditions of the community, before designing appropriate programs.

Environmentally Friendly Business Process
XL Axiata is proactively involved in environmental conservation endeavours through its energy saving, emissions reduction, and waste management programs. We are governing and managing energy and emissions, sorting domestic waste, and reducing the use of plastic items, such as plastic cups, plastic bottles, and plastic cutlery in offices, canteens, pantries, and meeting rooms. XL Axiata also reducing paper usage by implementing a digitisation system in various operational processes, such as procurement and approval. On our network operational, XL Axiata always considers environmental interest by expanding its 4G services using eco-friendly components and implementing energy-saving mechanisms where possible in its BTS. All products are safe and comply with regulatory standards, including the ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radio Protection) rules.
Energy Preservation
At XL Axiata we keep endeavouring to save energy in all our offices. Saving electrical energy is a requirement that we have integrated within the management programs of our office facilities, for example through using the video conferencing systems and through automatic regulation of electricity usage in meeting rooms. Additionally, we regulate the use of air conditioning and electricity in the office from 06:30 to 18:30. Outside these hours, interested parties are required to apply for special permission. In 20 of the BTS operated by XL Axiata, we use solar cells for renewable solar energy as a backup supply when the power goes out. In 2020, XL Axiata has succeeded in reducing its energy intensity by 28.1% compared to the preceding year. Meaning that to produce the same petabyte, we have used less energy.
Digital Solution for Smart Business
XL Axiata continues to strengthen the ecosystem and utilize the development potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) business solutions to meet the Industrial 4.0 era. XL Axiata developed Internet of Things (IoT) based solutions in agriculture to improve the quality of coffee beans post-harvest. The precision farming solution called "Smart Coffee Monitoring" initiates measurements and practices that are more reliable in the postharvest process by collecting data of variables that may affect the process. Other than that, XL Axiata also continued to develop IoT-based solutions that accommodate businesses from various segments. For farmers, XL Axiata developed a precision farming solution called "XL Smart Aquaculture". This solution aims to improve the quality of fish and shrimp farming. Implemented by several grouper and shrimp farmers in East Java, this solution was proven to increase average productivity level by 20%.
