GSMA Webinar: ESG Metrics for Mobile

GSMA Webinar: ESG Metrics for Mobile

Start: Thursday 7 July 2022 13:00

End: Thursday 7 July 2022 14:00

The GSMA has launched ‘ESG Metrics for Mobile, a first-of-its-kind mobile sector ESG reporting framework, developed alongside partners from EY, Yale Center for Business and the Environment, and a working group of 20 mobile operators representing 45% of the world’s mobile connections. The framework also draws on experience from key global industry and ESG stakeholders who contributed to the project.

Featuring ten industry-specific KPIs, the framework covers a range of key material topics for the sector, from energy consumption and waste reduction to digital inclusion and data protection. The common metrics are designed to simplify and harmonise ESG disclosures and complement universal reporting, by adding a crucial industry-specific lens.

As operators adopt this new ESG framework, the metrics will provide stakeholders with a deeper understanding of the industry, and where its most material impacts and value are generated.

Watch the on-demand videos to learn how mobile operators are coming together to harness ESG in order to demonstrate and generate greater value for society. 

During this interactive and informative webinar, the GSMA and EY shared details of the framework and discuss its benefits. The session featured an industry-focused panel discussion with mobile operators Vodafone and MTN, in addition to hearing from ESG investment experts from ESG Book (formerly Arabesque) and Refinitiv, who explored topics such as the power of alignment for accelerating progress and fostering a more meaningful dialogue between investors and companies.
