Belgacom Group, 28 February 2013
As part of its CSR commitment, the Belgacom Group aims to provide transparent communication to its customers. For this reason, since 2008 already Belgacom has been indicating the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) value of the mobile phones in its shops and on its website. In addition, Belgacom offers its customers tips on its website regarding the safe use of mobile phones, along with an e-learning course on electromagnetic radiation.
Following recent statements in the press, there is growing concern among customers about the effects on health of electromagnetic waves and fields emitted by mobile phones. The Belgacom Group anticipated this concern by taking the initiative to indicate the SAR value and thus provide clear information to customers when they purchase a new mobile phone. All mobile phones sold by Belgacom meet EU guidelines and the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO).
