Telecommunications is a central part of many people’s lives and a key factor in societal development and sustainable economic growth. For Telia Company, this brings responsibility beyond providing high quality products and services.
THE UN GLOBAL GOALS
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 all to make the world a better place.
The Goals were launched 25th Sept 2015 and Telia participated at the launch as a communication partner, to spread the word and knowledge about the targets. Since then we have developed our approach to Sustainability to fully embrace and enclose the Goals. Working in ICT, we are at the center of attention when it comes to the Goals. Our services are crucial to reach the global goals.
As a company we have an impact on the world around us, both negative and positive. Telia’s Responsible Business work focuses on minimizing the negative impact and always act responsibly.
