Etisalat cut costs by ramping up electronic billing

UAE based telecomprovider Etisalat is ramping up efforts for paperless billing.  Their vision is that online bills are reducing operating costs while helping the environment by encouraging customers to opt for electronic billing. Moving to ebills for consumers could also mean according to Etisalat a lot less time spent shredding paid monthly phone bills before the garbage is put out to the curb.

That is why Etisalat is now offering online billing  to customers across all services from mobile and television to landline telephony as an alternative to standard monthly bills delivered to home or workplace.

Ali Al Ahmad, Etisalat’s chief corporate communications officer, says:

  • Approximately 900 million trees are cut down annually, leading to paper products that constitute 40 per cent of our waste stream.
  • the new push for electronic billing is in keeping with Etisalat’s commitment for an environmentally safe and sustainable business model.
  • Etisalat is committed to delivering customer-friendly and convenient solutions by enabling technology to suit our customer’s varied needs
  • “Etisalat’s eBilling service reinforces our efforts in contributing to preserving the environment and promoting sustainability, in line with the Abu Dhabi Vision for 2030.”
  • “At present we save over 16 tonnes of paper per year, resulting in a reduced carbon footprint and lower operational costs.”
