JT shortlisted for two major awards


JT has joined the likes of Vodafone, BT and O2 on the shortlist of the Connected Britain Awards.

The shortlisting aims to recognise the work the telecoms firm has done on sustainability, and supporting the community.

The final winners will be announced at Connected Britain’s ‘The Future of UK Connectivity” conference on 21 September in London.

JT MD Daragh McDermott will also be giving a presentation during the conference on 'The role of digital infrastructure in the delivery of critical public services'.

Mr McDermott explained: “I’ll be speaking at the conference about how companies like JT can use their digital infrastructure – such as a full-fibre broadband network – to support their communities, particularly in challenging times such as the recent pandemic. I’m really proud of the way the team at JT has pulled together to keep islanders connected throughout everything we have all had to cope with.”

JT’s Director of Corporate Affairs and Sustainability Tom Noel added: “JT intends to do all it can to help the island meet its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2030, and we have recently published our sustainability strategy to do just that. To see our efforts marked with this shortlisting suggests we have started in the right way, and can now really ‘kick on’ to support this exceptionally important goal in the years to come.”
