Creating positive impact with Technology for Good™

By 2020, 90% of the world's population will be covered by mobile broadband networks. This scale brings unprecedented opportunity to address global sustainable development challenges. We use our technology, solutions and advocacy to create positive impacts for our stakeholders and our business while managing environmental, social and ethical risks.

In the Networked Society, Ericsson is the leading advocate of Technology for Good. It is a concept we work with every day to address areas such as climate change, poverty, education, health, human rights, and humanitarian issues such as refugees, peace and disaster response.

Each year we summarize our Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility performance. Our 23rd report looks at 2015.

Our Focus Areas

Our sustainability and corporate responsibility work are divided into three focus areas.

Conducting Business Responsibly

Conducting business responsibly, with integrity and transparency, is at the heart of our commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility.

Energy, environment and climate action

Our strategy is to reduce the carbon footprint of our own activities, maximize the energy performance of our products and solutions, and drive the transformation that enables a low-carbon economy.

Communication for all

ICT is increasingly recognized as an essential means of boosting social and economic development. But we need to scale for impact in order to make the full range of possibilities in the Networked Society affordable and accessible to all.

17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030

The UN Sustainable Development Goals call for several breakthroughs by the year 2030. Joint research by Ericsson and Columbia University highlights how ICT is fundamental to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and can even help to accelerate their achievement.
