Driving sustainable ESG transformation

The telecoms industry striving to launch competitive, digital business models and customer experiences, is accelerating the transition to scalable, cloud-native practices across the value chain.

This represents a growing opportunity to drive up ESG standards and practices. Closed-loop, self-optimizing systems are accelerating reductions in energy consumption, while demand for new skills is leading many businesses to become more diverse and inclusive.

The energy crisis and climate change imperatives have put telcos’ sustainability strategies firmly in the spotlight, leading them to adopt new technologies in the race to net zero. Explore the report for insights on sustainability trends and how digital transformation supports smarter energy usage.
