Before joining the Global Network Initiative, Telenor was a founding member of the Telecommunications Industry Dialogue on Freedom of Expression and Privacy (the Industry Dialogue). The objective of this initiative was for telecommunications operators and vendors to come together to address issues of privacy and freedom of expression through an Industry Dialogue, based on a set of Guiding Principles. According to the Guiding Principles, participating companies were expected to ‘report externally on an annual basis, and whenever circumstances make it relevant, on their progress in implementing the principles, and as appropriate on major events occurring in this regard.’
In 2017, the Industry Dialogue joined forces with the GNI.
Please see below for Telenor’s previous reports on its alignment with the Industry Dialogue:
