Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has published its 23rd annual Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Report, which details the company’s performance in 2015 in three areas: responsible business; energy, environment and climate change; and communication for all.
The report also highlights how ICT can enable all 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – and even has the potential to accelerate their achievement. The report includes examples ranging from how smart water management (”connected water”) can improve water availability, affordability and quality, to how mobile money services can reduce inequalities and enable financial inclusion.
Hans Vestberg, President and CEO, Ericsson, says: “The SDGs lay out a clear path to a more sustainable world, and ICT is a powerful lever to make that happen. We intend to build on our momentum from 2015 so everyone can benefit from the opportunities afforded by the Networked Society.”
Elaine Weidman-Grunewald, Vice President, Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility, Ericsson, says: “By embedding sustainability and corporate responsibility into our business, we have a strong platform for progress and positive impacts. We will continue to work in public-private partnership and advocate Technology for Good to drive change for the better.”
