Session Description

In a world where it’s now recognised that businesses can be a key force for positive societal change, the link between revenue, business growth and sustainability in the mobile industry has become a prevailing topic. GSMA’s recent publication, ESG Metrics for Mobile: insights from early adopters of ESG metrics, highlights important sustainability indicators which could positively impact business and societal outcomes. Engaging in sustainability practices just for the optics will no longer do, as investors and stakeholders want to see the long-term benefits of integrating a clear and well thought out sustainability strategy across the business.  Our expert panel will share insights, explore opportunities, and answer your questions about how businesses can meet sustainability targets and still thrive!
