We report our sustainability performance in accordance with the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). GRI is a framework for reporting on our economic, environmental, and social performance. GRI represents a universally applicable, comparable framework which facilitates transparency and accountability.

This report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option, with an in-depth and targeted reporting focusing on the most material topics to Telenor. Scope of the reporting is Telenor ASA and all Telenor’s subsidiaries directly or indirectly controlled by Telenor ASA (“business units”).

In 2015, Telenor Group, through the support of EY, undertook a comprehensive update and review of its materiality assessment to better reflect current stakeholder concerns and the company’s key sustainability risks and opportunities. The assessment was conducted in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative G4 principles for defining report content through the following key steps; identification, prioritisation and validation. The materiality process is regularly revised through internal workshops and meetings within Telenor to adapt for changes in context, risk and stakeholder feedback. More details on the materiality assessment process can be found here (PDF).
