It also provides various direct and wholesale services, such as fixed and mobile telephony, internet access and satellite services.

Edge Environment helped assess the group’s direct and indirect environmental and social footprint using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The LCA was commissioned to identify, quantify and describe the material direct and indirect environmental and social impacts of Singtel/Optus’ operations in Australia and Singapore.
