Vodafone Machine-to-Machine (M2M)

Delivering solutions for a more sustainable society

Tackling climate change is a huge challenge, and M2M is playing a significant role in helping both businesses and consumers reduce energy use and cut carbon emissions.

M2M can significantly contribute to creating a sustainable economy in industry. M2M can increase manufacturing process efficiency, support predictive maintenance and optimise order fulfilment which all help the business to cut costs and improve efficiency, which can reduce energy use and related carbon emissions.

There are many M2M applications that are helping to create a more sustainable society.

Smart mobility

Real-time data can be used to optimise traffic signals to ensure constant traffic flow and reduce emissions. In the transport and logistics industry, many fleet management companies use a combination of satellite tracking and telematics to help achieve fuel efficiencies, manage drivers and reduce emissions.

Smart buildings

M2M enables the installation of smart grids that allow generators to route power more efficiently reducing the need for excess capacity and allowing two-way information exchange with customers for real-time demand management.

Real-time presence data can so be used to optimise energy use for heating, air conditioning, lighting and other building functions. Small adjustments can be made instantly in response to the day’s weather and the number of people in the building.

Smart cities

Smart cities include everything from intelligent transport, lighting and waste management systems used to dramatically reduce energy use, to electric vehicle chargers around the city to solar panels installed on public buildings and schools with the ability to sell surplus energy back to the city’s smart grid.

Smart business

M2M technology is making it possible for organisations across industries to engage with their customers in new and innovative ways. Ongoing communication with partners in the supply chain and end customers will help you to better understand their needs, improve customer service and potentially make it possible for you to develop additional value-added services.

Our Code of Conduct

Reporting concerns

All employees and contractors have a duty to report any breaches of our Code of Conduct, which is known as our "Speak Up" policy. We have launched a global external reporting scheme which allows employees and contractors to report through a third party. This new process enables us to consolidate existing whistle blowing practice in local markets, increases visibility and ensures consistency of approach in responding to concerns raised from across the organisation. Concerns may be reported anonymously and the protection of innocent people is our priority at all times. People can identify themselves to our external partner using a PIN and receive feedback. Vodafone has a non-retaliation policy and will not take any action against anyone reporting a genuine concern, even if this is proven not to result in a breach of compliance.
