Geoff Pegg

Director - Sustainability, TELUS

It’s well understood that you get the behavior you incent – and clearly that’s working at Telus, where one of the highlights of Geoff’s accomplishments has been the linking of team member pay, in part, to meeting sustainability objectives through embedding sustainability metrics into corporate scorecards. Telus, who every year issues a GRI report, has delivered an absolute reduction in GhG emissions of 17.5% since 2010, despite a significant growth in the size of their networks in the same time period. With their largest source of emissions coming from their building portfolio, the company invests in solar, captures waste heat from server rooms and has launched many other initiatives to reduce energy use.
