Responsible business in Telenor

Empowering societies. Connecting you to what matters most. That’s Telenor’s purpose. Founded in Norway over 165 years ago, we live and breathe the Nordic values of equality, trust and democracy in the way we do business today. Our purpose is not just a statement on glossy paper. We have put responsible business as one of three key strategic pillars for the company – ingraining it within everything we do. We realise that global challenges cannot be addressed alone. As a global company, we are part of a larger effort guided by the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and delivered through our partnerships.

"No matter where you live in the world, if you are a farmer in Bangladesh or a fisherman in Norway, a father in Pakistan or a mother in Finland, sustainability matters. Sustainability at Telenor is how we do business in a responsible way that helps both create value for the business and empowers and sustains the world for generations to come. If societies do better, we do better.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has put our contribution to society to the test. The new normal makes delivering connectivity crucial in every society where we operate and presents a clear reminder of our shared commitment and responsibility to support the societies we are part of.

We are dedicated to being a trusted partner to all our stakeholders and remain fully committed to the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact in the areas of Human Rights, Labor, Environment and Anti-Corruption."
