Telefónica’s Eco Smart digital services help companies to increase their energy efficiency and sustainability to enable us to protect our planet together.
In a visual manner, the Eco Smart seal displays the environmental benefits generated by a selection of Telefónica Empresas digital products and services so that our customers can quickly find out how they can help to protect the environment if they subscribe to them. This information can also help them to incorporate sustainability criteria into their purchasing decisions.
These solutions are geared towards companies of different sizes in the key sectors, including tourism, industry, logistics and distribution, retail and banking. Based on a fully renewable and low-emission network, our Eco Smart cloud, IoT, big data and artificial intelligence services reduce energy and water consumption and CO2 emissions and promote the circulation economy.

Our greatest contribution to the environment comes from digitization. Last year, we avoided 3.2 million tons of CO2 thanks to our services, so that for every ton we issued we saved 3.3. In our four main markets we accomplished 2.3 million and the goal is to reach 5 million yearly by 2025
Cloud services make it easier to optimise energy consumption and cut down on CO2 emissions by means of sharing service delivery infrastructures and platforms. At Telefónica we see virtualisation as a fundamental step towards more sustainable cloud computing.
The Alcalá Data Center is the European headquarters for the company's cloud services, providing customers with a range of flexible services to give their company a private and highly secure space for them to install all the business applications they need: Virtual Data Center, Cloud Garden, Virtual SAP and HANA, PaaS Oracle, Helix, etc.
The data center complies with the Green IT international principles of eco-efficiency and sustainability and features the latest electrical and air-conditioning infrastructures to reduce energy consumption by approximately 75%.
We assist our customers in the complete transformation of their public lighting systems by helping adapt them to the highest standards of efficiency, safety and sustainability.
The solutions offered range from the replacement of existing street lamps having very low energy efficiency and high light pollution for high performance units with LED technology to the incorporation of wireless point-to-point telecontrol of each lamp, including Nb-IoT communications, the telecontrol devices and management software able to give on/off orders, control the light intensity, measure energy consumption and return time records of the use of the parts of the lamps themselves (LEDs, drivers,...).
Through all this we can generate important efficiencies from the resulting energy savings, provide improved pedestrian and driver safety and contribute to the reduction of light pollution levels.
Smart transport and fleet management
This IoT solution allows fleet users and managers to know in real time the location and activity of a fleet of vehicles or mobile assets, as well as information about possible engine failures or fuel consumption, etc. It can also generate activity alarms as well as recognise and alert to possible accidents by collecting all kinds of data that would allow for the reconstruction of the accident. The platform can also flexibly produce a variety of reports adapted to the needs of each customer.
The service consists of plug-and-play equipment, M2M communications and the fleet control and management software platform. In addition, it can integrate other types of hardware that increase the functionalities of the solution, NFC driver identifier, and integration with tachograph, sensors, etc. This solution allows companies to improve their fleet's productivity and optimization, better its road safety and energy efficiency, and keep track of fuel consumption. Fleet managers have key information for making real-time decisions. Drivers also have more information about the vehicle they are driving and how they drive it.
Water and gas metering
End-to-end solution that provides remote management and reading of water and gas meters, bringing with it great advantages: 1. Attaining operational efficiencies derived from the optimisation of pipelines and new use cases, such as identification of consumption patterns, demand forecasting, remote incident detection, etc. 2. Positive revenue impact, enabling fraud detection systems or new business models, such as second home assistance. 3. Improved end-user satisfaction, derived from the elimination of estimated billing and improved incident resolution processes.
The main elements of the solution are the device (smart meter or other elements such as hubs), Nb-IoT connectivity for extended battery life and a greater penetration in interiors and basements, and the metering and measurement management platform. Additionally, these are complemented with Advanced Analytics or Big Data solutions to implement specific use cases as well as a transversal Security layer applied to all our infrastructures and processes. All this is done by providing unified post-sales support from Telefónica, which acts as a nexus for ensuring these components have guaranteed functioning.
Energy Efficiency Solution
This is an end-to-end proposal that allows our customers to manage their organisation’s energy efficiency and sustainability policies. It features a set of modular and flexible solutions that provide for optimal energy management, increased efficiency and the creation of positive economic and environmental impacts, all while maintaining convenience.
As the proposal is modular, each customer's installation may require different solutions. In general, these include the following: energy audits pursuant to Spanish law and commissioning of facilities; telemetric systems for power, water or gas consumption; remote management of climate and lighting equipment and even the renovation and installation of infrastructures, such as a solar energy plant for self-consumption. The ultimate goal is to ensure maximum energy efficiency at the customers' facilities, reducing energy consumption at times by up to 25%, while maintaining the service level requirements (temperatures, humidity, etc.). In addition to the personalised attention of an energy manager, all projects include the installation and maintenance of the necessary devices.
IoT connectivity: Kite platform
The Kite platform is a Managed Connectivity IoT service that provides a safe, efficient and robust connection of IoT and M2M devices with our customers’ business processes. In addition to traditional 2G/3G connectivity, it integrates new NB-IoT and LTM-M network technologies oriented to specific use cases in the IoT world, helping to develop new business models and achieve network and device efficiencies (optimising battery life management, for example).
It also provides control and management capabilities on groups of lines and devices by providing display, monitoring and control operations, notifications and alerts, localisation and technical supervision, all in real time and remotely from anywhere in the world.
Kite is a transversal solution able to meet the needs of IoT projects, increasing the automation and productivity of our customers' business: having better knowledge of the interconnected devices, thanks to information on their lines and devices and consequently the power to act on them remotely, translates into better measurement, control and communication processes in real time, controlling and reducing the costs associated with their operating processes
