The newly built ultra-modern office complex of MTN Ghana otherwise known as the “MTN House” is an embodiment of environmental sustainability.

The MTN House has green initiatives such as rain water harvesters and recycling receptacles. Apart from these, the communication giant is also planning for the implementation of sustainable energy.

Speaking at the commissioning of the MTN House on March 23, 2016 Mr. Ebenezer Twum Asante (Chief Executive Officer of MTN Ghana) said, “This landmark building has a design that is both classic and modern to represent MTN’s timeless relevance and long-term impact in Ghana. Its splendid architecture represents our Bold New Digital World vision, built to last beyond this century and even look further to the next millennium.”

“To Ghanaians and potential investors this building is a bold declaration of our belief in this country and its future, and we must all work to make it great,” he added.

Located on the Independence Avenue road (Ridge) in Accra, the humungous building has in it facilities such as customer experience center, media center, an ultra-modern video conference and tele-presence center, four collapsible training suits, modern network operating center, roof garden, modern gym facility, kitchen, a multipurpose hall, ultra-modern car park, and a crèche for staff dependants.

Since it entry into the Ghanaian market in 2006, MTN Ghana has invested about US$2.512 billion. The MTN House hosts approximately 800 employees.

Board Chairman of MTN Ghana, Mr. Ishmael Yamson also used the opportunity to caution the employees to take inspiration from the unique environment of the MTN House.

“This building is also a call to greater responsibility. As MTN leads in the transformation of Ghana’s telecommunications sector, we also expect MTN staff to provide leadership in our communities and to ensure that our impact is felt in all spheres of life,” he noted.
