Our sustainability vision is to invent, design, and deploy sustainable technologies that make a real difference to people’s lives, and take responsibility for the impact we can make in the world.
As a values-driven business, we purposefully design technologies to drive social, environmental, and economic progress, and wherever we can, seek to harness the opportunities of connectivity for people and our planet.
To ensure our activities support sustainable development, our performance has to reflect the following priorities:
- Improving people’s lives with technology
- Respecting people in everything we do
- Protecting the environment
- Making change happen together
Improving people’s lives with technology
This means enhancing the use of technology to help people live better lives and to support the shift towards a low-carbon economy.
Respecting people in everything we do
This means running our business in line with internationally recognized ethical and responsible business practices and integrating our high standards in our supply chain. It also means fostering a culture where health and safety is a priority, and creating a great place to work for our employees. As we produce equipment that enhances digitalization, we believe it’s our responsibility to ensure our communications technologies are used to respect, and not infringe, human rights such as privacy.
Protecting the environment
This means we save energy, cut carbon emissions, and minimize waste by improving our activities throughout the value chain. It also means helping telecoms operators manage energy use in their networks as the growth of mobile data services continues.
Making change happen together
This means working with various stakeholders including suppliers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), industry, customers and partners to make an even greater contribution to global efforts to achieve a more sustainable, socially responsible world.
