External Affairs and Industry Purpose

Intelligently connecting everyone and everything to a better future.

In March 2016, the mobile industry became the first sector to commit to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs represent a global call to action to end poverty, protect our planet and enable peace and prosperity for all people by 2030.

The mobile industry is at the forefront of the digital revolution and continues to deliver impact through global initiatives. Our leaders are driving change within the industry and empowering other industries to follow suit.

Mobile industry leaders are establishing strategic partnerships to capitalise on the power of mobile connectivity. They are taking action to improve people’s lives, across developed and developing countries.
