Megafon supporting the innovation

Sustainable development is a key element of MegaFon’s business philosophy. It defines our approach to innovation, development, and introduction of new products and services.

Everything about MegaFon

MegaFon is a leading Russian integrated telecommunications operator that holds leading positions in the telecommunications market of Russia and the world. The company and its subsidiaries provide services in all regions of Russia, as well as in the Republic of Abkhazia, South Ossetia, and Tajikistan. At the end of 2016, the total subscriber base had more than 77.4 million people — more than half the country’s population.

Environmental protection and initiatives

Respect for the environment is essential for the good health of future generations. MegaFon recognizes the importance of environmental factors for any activity. Year after year, they minimize the impact of their operations on the environment through the rational use of resources, particularly energy, water and paper in the company’s offices and sales outlets. For instance, this year (2019) the head office of MegaFon was ranked top by Moscow authorities in a list of 80 most energy efficient offices in the Russian capital. The evaluation was carried out as part of its “Green Office” initiative.

When building base stations, MegaFon uses advanced energy-saving technologies and ensure a gradual transition to alternative energy systems. As of today, they already have 12 solar-wind generators installed in Russia. Since 2011, MegaFon has commissioned in the Murmansk Region four base stations running on wind energy. In 2014, we launched a solar-powered base station in Dagestan.

Every EV counts!

By Megafon’s support on the Electric Marathon 2019 Rally, we step again closer to our mission: to promote innovative technology vehicles through the use of alternative fuels and electricity as their vehicles propelling energy sources.
