2016 Mobile Industry Impact Report: Sustainable Development Goals

Resource published September 15, 2016

This report is a critical input into the development of a comprehensive SDG implementation plan for the mobile industry.

This first-of-its-kind report offers critical insights into the transformative impact of the mobile industry on individuals, societies, and economies around the world, in developed and developing markets. Importantly, it establishes a benchmark through which the industry will assess its success in contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and serves as a blueprint for other industries as they commit to achieving the SDGs. 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.
