THIS REPORT: THE MOBILE INDUSTRY IMPACT REPORT: SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
This report is a critical input into the development of a comprehensive SDG implementation plan for the mobile industry. The report links the mobile industry’s activities to the SDGs and their targets, and assesses the impact of these activities on the SDGs. This body of evidence is then used to reflect on the implications of current trends and what the industry can do to enhance impact. The development of the report has created a framework, approach, dataset, model and narrative that can be adopted by other sectors and organisations embarking on this journey.
The development of this report and its associated assets has four main objectives:
1. Facilitate progress reporting through the creation of a common, measureable system that links the industry’s activities to their impact on the SDGs and their associated targets;
2. Provide an input into industry decisions on strategy, planning and investment;
3. Allow the mobile industry to engage more effectively with existing or new partners on the basis of the impact on the SDGs;
4. Create a framework that can be shared with others in the mobile communications ecosystem, as well as with other industries.
