Today, Tele2 debuts its Sustainability Report. Tele2 has reported on its CR actions for a long time, but it is the first time all relevant non-financial information on Tele2’s environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) impact has been collected in one standalone report. With this report Tele2 fulfills a new legal obligation in the Swedish Annual Accounts Act, to provide sustainability information to its stakeholders. In order to prepare this report, Tele2 has used the sustainability reporting framework developed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) called GRI Standards.
Tele2 prides itself on being a Responsible Challenger, which is why CR can be found at the heart of its Corporate Strategy. Tele2 takes CR into account in all of its day-to-day business decisions and strongly believes that by doing so, it creates more value for its customers, employees, and shareholders. Going forward, Tele2 is going to further increase its focus and establish concrete goals, as well as increase the coordination of all its activities in the area of CR.
During 2017, Tele2 has been recognized for its efforts in the area of CR. Tele2 was top-rated (A) by Nordea, making Tele2 investible for their Star funds. FTS4Good, one of the leading sustainability indices that measures the ESG performance of companies, again included Tele2 in their index. Tele2 was ranked as #1 transparent company in Lithuania by Transparency International in a comparison of the 49 largest companies in Lithuania. The Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets from the Stockholm School of Economics recognized Tele2 for “walking the talk” when it comes to CR, doubling its “walking” score since the last report of 2015. In August 2017, the Tele2 Leadership Team raised SEK 300,000 for SOS Children Villages by organizing a sponsored Bike Tour through the Baltics.
