Globe Telecom encourages consumers to take steps in reducing their environmental impact by using their mobile devices to access health, financial, educational, entertainment, retail, food, and other services to minimize travel.

Petroleum-fed vehicles are one of the largest sources of carbon emissions in many cities around the world. Every time a person rides a bus, car, motorcycle, ship, airplane or similar modes of transportation that does not use green energy contributes to greenhouse gas production.

“Mobile technology has given consumers the power to accomplish a lot of things literally at their fingertips. Through mobile phones, we can pay our bills, visit the doctor, go to the bank, buy food, go to school, shop for clothes, among other things. By going digital, we could lessen our contribution to greenhouse gas emission and assist in healing our planet,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications.

One of the services that many Filipinos have yet to try but which can help save a lot of time, effort, and money is telehealth. KonsultaMD, for instance, gives the public immediate access to a team of skilled and licensed Filipino doctors anytime they need it, whenever they may be.

By calling KonsultaMD’s 24/7 hotline (02-7798 8000), anyone may seek medical information through the phone for primary conditions (such as cough, fever, cold, flu, pink eye/sore eyes, sinus infections, urinary tract infections, bronchitis, rashes, allergies, asthma), maternity, pediatrics, among others; telephone triage to determine urgency of the situation; reading of, and information on, lab and diagnostic results; health coaching and nutrition counseling; and prescription for over-the-counter medication.

On the other hand, the public may also benefit from the ease of use of mobile money. While digital finance was intended primarily to promote financial inclusion especially among those who are unbanked, it has started to grow in the Philippines and is fast becoming part of the Filipino lifestyle.

Online financial platforms like GCash allow people to send money to another GCash user, buy load, transfer money to a bank and vice versa, pay bills, pay for goods and services, get a loan, invest, save money and even help rebuild the Philippine forests without travelling since everything can be done through the app.

“Mobile operators around the world are doing their best to reduce the impact of climate change through various innovations. We at Globe continue to look for ways to reduce our own carbon footprint while helping consumers, businesses, and industries do the same by using mobile technologies,” Crisanto said.

Globe actively supports 10 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and combines innovation with the power of collaboration to achieve inclusive and sustainable development for all.
