Responding to global challenges
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were launched by the United Nations in September 2015 and offer a common, global framework for considering and addressing the world’s most significant development challenges.
Business is a key stakeholder and will play an important part in achieving the SDGs. This year we identified some initial priorities that reflect our business context, key risks and impacts and current social and environmental focus.
For more context including the specific targets we are working to achieve and where they are most relevant across our value chain, please refer to the Sustainability at Telstra chapter of our Bigger Picture 2016 Sustainability Report.
We remain a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact and are committed to supporting its principles – on human rights, labour rights, environment and anti-corruption – wherever we operate.
