Eco Friendly Sims

By: davidgbartlett | 24-07-2019 13:23

What steps are giffgaff taking to be more eco friendly, environmentally conscious and reduce CO footprint? We all know this is a current issue in our day.

My suggestion is for giffgaff to jump on this band wagon and promote itself as a 'green' network provider, to gain rapport with the public and access more potential customers.

However to do this, it needs to make changes.

How about changing the way sims are packaged? I would not be referring to the paper part, which is recyclable, but the plastic frame around the sim. Could giffgaff explore options to remove this and use another medium which is recyclable, such as card? How this would work would need trial and testing.

Thanks for reading.

I am passionate about the environment, climate change, and recycling.

Something related to this has been suggested a few times internally and externally and we're thinking about getting giffgaff certified under B corporation certification.


Certifying as a B Corporation goes beyond product- or service-level certification. B Corp Certification is the only certification that measures a company’s entire social and environmental performance. The B Impact Assessment evaluates how your company’s operations and business model impact your workers, community, environment, and customers. From your supply chain and input materials to your charitable giving and employee benefits, B Corp Certification proves your business is meeting the highest standards of verified performance.

Positive impact is supported by transparency and accountability requirements. B Corp Certification doesn’t just prove where your company excels now—it commits you to consider stakeholder impact for the long term by building it into your company’s legal structure.

This is not a major priority but we have an eye out for more ideas around this including recyclable phone cases etc.

Also e-sim means that SIMs will in the next few years be a thing of the past.

More to come and thanks for the submission. If or when we do this, your idea will be marked as implemented.

This is good news. Shame this message has now been buried due to newer (often pointless) comments. This is why this idea needs to be implemented https://labs.giffgaff.com/idea/16714051/pin-giffg...
