2020 Mobile Industry Impact Report: Sustainable Development Goals
2020 marks five years since the Sustainable Development Goals were adopted, leaving just 10 years remaining to achieve them. While significant progress had been made since 2015, it has been recognised by governments and the international community the world was not on track to deliver the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Since the mobile industry committed to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in 2016, the sector has been measuring progress annually. This fifth edition of the report looks at the increased impact the mobile industry has had on achieving the goals in the last year and explores what more it needs to do in the next 10 years to reach these ambitious goals. It also examines the role the mobile industry has played during the Covid-19 pandemic.
