Greenpeace India and lakhs of mobile consumers across India had been demanding Airtel to take leadership in cleaning up the telecom sector for past two years.

"Now that Bharti Airtel has taken leadership towards sustainability we demand other companies to follow suit and roll out their sustainability plans." Chattaraj said.
Bharti Airtel in its ongoing dialogue with Greenpeace India has assured of even more detailed and concrete sustainable action plan in coming months.
