We connect for a better future
We are a communications technology company responsible for connecting over 650 million people, and organisations of all sizes, to the digital society.
We are optimistic about how technology and connectivity can enhance the future and improve people’s lives. Through our business, we aim to build a connected society that enhances socio-economic progress, embraces everyone and does not come at the cost of our planet. That is why we have committed to improve one billion lives and halve our environmental impact by 2025, by taking concrete action in three areas: Digital society, Inclusion for All and Planet.
We believe in a connected digital society, where data flows at speed, connecting people, communities and things to the internet like never before. With our Gigabit networks citizens will access an ever-growing range of services in real-time and businesses can develop new products and services to meet the needs of future generations. The Internet of Things (IoT) will create more efficient, safer and smarter transport; and mobile financial services will reduce poverty and enable access to essential services like healthcare and education. These services enable incredible innovation and technologies to be developed to help make our lives easier, healthier, smarter and more fulfilling.
Inclusion for all
We believe that the opportunities and promise of a better digital future should be accessible to all. We are committed to ensuring that the more vulnerable are not left behind on the journey towards that future. Through our technology, we will work to bridge the divides that exist and help people to contribute equally and fully to society.
We believe that urgent and sustained action is required to address climate change, and business success should not come at a cost to the environment. Through our commitment to halve our environmental impact, we will help to ensure a sustainable future for all.
Our focus on energy efficiency, renewable energy supply and network waste will help us to mitigate the impact of our business growth and our customer’s increasing demand for data.
