Teleperformance, global leader in outsourced customer and citizen experience management, joined millions across the world in celebrating Earth Hour 2023, continuing to deliver on its commitment to sustainability and the planet.
On March 25, as part of its climate action program Citizen of the Planet (COTP), Teleperformance switched off all of the lights in its 23 offices across the Philippines for one hour in honor of Earth Hour, saving 2,004.04 kilowatt hours (kWH)—enough to power ten homes for an entire month. “
We, at Teleperformance, are deeply committed to contributing to the enormous climate actions needed to reach a net zero world. From activities like the Earth Hour that build awareness to bigger undertakings such as actively switching to renewables and implementing energy-efficient measures in our operations, our sights are set on our pledge to achieve net zero emissions by 2040,”
Teleperformance Philippines Chief Executive Officer Francisco ‘Sisco’ Lara shared. Teleperformance Philippines has consistently made strides in curbing its energy consumption, such as the initiative of transforming the annual Earth Hour activity into a monthly event. In 2022 alone, the company managed to conserve 25,565.43 kWh of electricity, equivalent to the monthly consumption of 127 homes.
The company’s advocacy for enabling a greener, safer, and cleaner Philippines also extends well beyond the walls of their offices. In October 2022, Teleperformance inked a landmark partnership with AboitizPower, a leading renewable energy provider in the Philippines, to power their Bacolod and Sucat sites.
With this, Teleperformance became one of the first Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies in the country to switch to renewable energy. Earlier, Teleperformance launched a global campaign to raise money in support of reforestation efforts in the Philippines and elsewhere by teaming up with the non-profit organization One Tree Planted. Tree-planting initiatives in deforested areas benefited greatly from the generous donations Teleperformance mobilized.
“Teleperformance marches on with the planet in mind as we continue our efforts in sustainability for the next coming years. We would like to thank all our employees and partners from all walks of life, who have contributed their part for our planet,” Lara added.
