Overview

Sustainability is one of the defining issues of our generation. Consumers, employees and regulators are increasingly vocal regarding their expectations for companies to act responsibly and to demonstrate how they create value to society.

Operating in a responsible and sustainable way is not just about doing the right thing for society or the environment — it also makes business sense in today’s commercial environment. This course looks at why operating responsibly is so important for companies in the mobile sector, and highlights how the industry is moving towards more effective and consistent approaches to measuring and communicating ESG performance.

Unfortunately, previous reporting approaches were fragmented and burdensome, due to the multitude of global ESG reporting standards and an ‘alphabet soup’ of standard-setters. This was hindering meaningful action and transformation. However, the sector has now defined at set of industry-specific ESG KPIs to streamline the process.

This course explains why ESG KPIs are important, details the new KPIs that have been designed specifically for the mobile industry and explains the practical steps operators are taking to implement these metrics in their ESG reports.
