At the current trajectory, mobile broadband will provide network coverage to around 92 percent of the world’s population by 2024. This scale brings an unprecedented opportunity to address global challenges of sustainable development. Technology for Good is our initiative where we use our expertise in new technologies, our solutions, and our advocacy to make life better around the world.
For more than a century, Ericsson’s technologies have transformed sectors across society. We remain committed to leading this journey and believes that deployment of mobile broadband networks can help tackle a range of global challenges.
We continue to research and develop products and services that support and reach for the accessibility and affordability of communication infrastructure by offering services that drive sustainable economic growth and innovative solutions across areas such as education, financial services, health and humanitarian response.
Ericsson believes that partnerships are at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals, and public-private partnerships play a key role in our approach to sustainability and digital inclusion. We drive two public-private partnership programs globally: Connect to Learn and Ericsson Response.
