At Telenor, we continue to evolve our services, operations, and targets as they relate to the SDGs. At the heart of our business functions is a drive to provide sustainable, innovative, and resilient infrastructure (SDG9 & SDG13). Through our services and programmes, we are committed to empowering societies by reducing inequalities (SDG10), empowering women and girls (SDG5), and helping enable quality education (SDG4). Together, these five SDGs form the bedrock of our global commitments.

Access SDG impact assessment report 2020

SDG impact can be seen through two lenses. The first lens describes the positive impact of Telenor’s products and services on the SDG targets. The second shows how Telenor’s potential and actual risks may also impact the SDG targets. Together, they paint a broad and interconnected picture of which SDGs Telenor has most impact on and engagement with. In our yearly SDG Impact Assessment, the size of each SDG icon reflects Telenor’s impact.

Our methodology is based on principles put forth in the UN Global Compact and GRI report, Integrating the SDGs into corporate reporting: a practical guide. Each year, Telenor works to assess initiatives and risks that could impact the SDGs, map these initiatives and risks against specific SDG targets and rank the SDGs based on the frequency of the SDG targets addressed. The results of the ranking is then reflected in the size of the SDG icons within the yearly SDG Impact Assessment report.
