THE UN GLOBAL GOALS

Connectivity and technology have significant effects on social progress. We want to leverage our core competencies and business to create shared value – combining social good with business benefits – and by that contribute to achieving the UN Global Goals

Digitalization - the development and use of information and communications technology (ICT) - has many positive effects on society. ICT development positively correlates to a country’s social progress. Mobile and fixed network coverage directly and positively affects GDP growth.

The UN Global Goals (also called Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs) provide a common agenda for Telia, our customers, the countries we operate in and many other stakeholders. It is the framework for us to make the world a better place.

Below are some examples how we create shared value and contribute to achieve the UN Global Goals.

Our core business in general, and All In in particular, directly or indirectly contributes to the realization of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Two All In strategic objectives – A healthy and safe society and Education for all – directly drive towards SDG3: Good health and well-being and SDG4: Quality education. Together with industry associations GSMA and GeSI, we are identifying ways of making ICT an enabler and deciding factor in meeting the Global Goals.
