UN’s Sustainable Develop Goals and UN Global Compact


Telenor Maritime is committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and we fully support the UN Global Compact Principles. For our contribution we focus on the goals where either our products have
an impact or where our employees and company have an impact. We are a member of the UN Global Compact.

How our products contribute to UN’s SDGs

Symbol representing UN SDG Goal 9Our products have an impact on Sustainable Development Goal 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation, and Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

With our communication technology we are contributing to increasing access to communication and information technology where such technology was not previously available. Our communication
technology is removing the “digital divide” between onshore and offshore. This has a direct impact on Goal 9.c: Significantly increase access to information and communications technology and strive to provide universal and affordable access to internet in least developed countries by 2020.

UN SDG Goal 13: Climate actionTelenor Maritime’s information and communication technology is enabling others to transition towards green activities. In addition, through our products, customers are able to remain connected and receive early warnings should any crisis or catastrophe occur offshore. Our products have an impact on Goal 13.3: Improve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning.

How we contribute to UN’s SDGs

UN SDG Goal 08: Decent work and economic growthThe Telenor Maritime company and its employees contribute to UN Sustainable Development Goal 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all, and Goal 10: Reduce inequality within and among countries. As a business unit of Telenor Group, we value Goal 10 highly and work consistently to reduce inequality. This goal is also a part of our global business strategy.

UN SDG Goal 10: Reduced inequalitiesWe thrive to promote an inclusive and sustainable economic growth with a focus on innovation and technology, thereby contributing to Goal 8.2: Achieve higher levels of economic productivity through diversification, technological upgrading and innovation, including through a focus on high-value added and labour-intensive sectors. However, the most important goal for Telenor Maritime is an inclusive and safe work environment for all employees and we greatly value Goal 8.8: Protect labour rights and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers, including migrant workers, in particular women migrants, and those in precarious employment.

UN SDG Goal 12: Responsible consumption and productionWe value climate and environment and our local initiatives aim to promote sustainability and reduce waste generation, which has a direct impact on Goal 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns and Goal 12.5: By 2030, substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.
