Social

At Cellnex we analyse, measure and manage the impacts we generate as a company in the environment where we operates.

We are committed to contributing to society by providing our knowledge and technology, working with charities, financing projects or volunteering.

Social projects

  • Social housing
  • Llar Casa Bloc
  • Youth challenge

1/3

We work together with the Third Social Sector Board, through the M4Social project, to provide social housing with connectivity through the Internet of Things (IoT), equipping them with sensors to collect and monitor data related to energy efficiency and comfort (consumption, temperature, humidity and CO2 levels).

A joint initiative with the Habitat3 Foundation to provide Wi-Fi connectivity and the Internet of Things (IoT) for this urban rehabilitation project for social housing. We have installed sensors and reading tablets in the homes to show the energy consumption in real time to the tenants. All of this is connected to the Smart Brain data management platform.

1/2

Designing a comprehensive zero-emissions telecommunications site with an autonomous energy generation, accumulation and management system, intended for areas without access to the electricity grid.
These infrastructures, which are self-supplying with wind and solar energy, are especially useful for the deployment of shared networks in rural areas.
They also anticipate the infrastructure model necessary for communication between vehicles and the implementation of the autonomous vehicle that Cellnex is testing in its Mobility Laboratory located in the Parcmotor Castellolí circuit in Barcelona.

Cellnex Ireland promotes the Get Connected initiative as a platform to channel the demand for better connectivity by local communities where there is poor or no broadband coverage (black spots) that hinders the development of social, employment and economic activity, particularly in rural areas.
In line with Ireland’s National Broadband Plan, Cellnex works with the administration and mobile operators to deploy the necessary infrastructure in these areas.

Electromagnetic fields

As a telecommunications infrastructures operator, we comply at all times with the legal frameworks established for electromagnetic emissions.

We work closely with expert groups in research on the impact of electromagnetic fields (EMF) and participate in activities related to the evaluation, management and communication of possible risks derived from their exposure, both for the general public and for our staff. Some of the associations with which we work are DigitalES in Spain, IBEC and EPA in Ireland, Asstel in Italy and FSM in Switzerland.
We also participate in EMC working groups of international associations of which we are a member, such as ETSI, GSMA, SCF, ITU and EWIA.
Internally, the company has a multidisciplinary working group in this area to act as a forum for exchanging knowledge and best practices; to monitor its development both nationally and internationally; to coordinate technical and regulatory approaches; and to work on a group-level CEM strategy.

Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are a combination of invisible electric and magnetic fields of force. They occur both naturally (for example, the earth static magnetic field to which we are constantly exposed or the electric fields caused by electrical charges in the clouds) and due to human activity (generated by power lines, radio and television waves and, more recently, cellular telephones).
Electromagnetic radiation falls into two categories: non-ionising radiations (NIR) a low-frequency, low-energy radiation that does not have enough capacity to ionize atoms or molecules -that is, to remove an electron from it, and ionising radiations, mid to high-frequency, more powerful.

Yes. Comprehensive international guidelines exist governing exposure to radio waves including the frequencies proposed for 5G. The limits have been established by independent scientific organizations, such as the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), and include substantial margins of safety to protect all people against all established hazards. These guidelines have been widely adopted in standards around the world, and are endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) provides scientific advice and guidance on the health and environmental effects of non-ionizing radiation (NIR) to protect people and the environment from detrimental NIR exposure. The ICNIRP 1998 guidelines (reviewed in March 2020), has become the basis for setting health limits for mobile base stations and mobile phones in many countries. At EU level, Council Recommendation 1999/519/EC is based on the ICNIRP 1998 guidelines.
Compliance standards describe the methods used to determine that exposures from wireless network antennas are less than the recommended exposure limits. Public agencies periodically measure the emissions at selected operational sites. The results of these controls are made available through reports and/or online access.

Over 50 years of scientific research has already been conducted into the possible health effects of the radio signals used for mobile phones, base stations and other wireless services including frequencies planned for 5G exposures. Based on these studies, there is no scientific evidence to suggest that there are any health risks associated with 5G, nor with previous mobile technologies (4G, 3G…).
The World Health Organization states that “a large number of studies have been performed over the last two decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential health risk. To date, no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone use.”
