The UN Sustainable Development Goals are big – and so is the mobile industry’s ambition.
The world’s mobile operators have now unified behind one common industry purpose: Connecting everyone and everything to a better future. This purpose highlights our commitment to playing a leading role in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Ours is the first large industry association to align itself to the SDGs; stating a clear intention to contribute and advance the societies in which we operate.
Mobile connectivity is transforming the lives of billions of people across the world, providing access to essential services, timely information and rich entertainment. At the same time, mobile networks are making cities and companies smarter, connecting all kinds of devices, appliances, machines and vehicles, increasing efficiency, cutting waste, and enabling compelling new services. And there is much, much more to come. Between now and 2030, the mobile industry will bring billions of people and things online, helping to deliver the SDGs, while enabling immersive experiences that will enrich our lives.
