At the Global Mobile (GLOMO) Awards during Mobile World Congress 2018, Ericsson received the award for Best Mobile Innovation supporting Emergency or Humanitarian Situations for our Ericsson Response mission in the Caribbean during 2017. Ericsson and our UN partner World Food Programme received the award from Mats Granryd, Director-General of the GSMA.

The judges said: “This shows the massive difference it makes when technology companies and their employees put their skills, tech and money to good use. It’s a taste of how the world could be if other tech companies followed this example.”

Ericsson was shortlisted for all four of our submissions in the Social Good category, out of over 700 received by the GLOMO judges. The other initiatives were:

  • Connect to Learn Myanmar for Best Mobile Innovation for Education
  • Green Scheduler with Lean Carrier for the Green award
  • Ericsson’s IoT Landslide Alarm Solution, a second submission for best use of mobile for humanitarian response.

You can read about all of these initiatives in our recently published Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Report.
