They are central to Ericsson’s core business and our commitment to the triple bottom line of responsible financial and environmental performance and socio-economic development. Our sustainability and corporate responsibility strategy is focused on driving positive change in three main areas: Responsible Business Practice, Energy, Environment and Climate Change, and Communication for All. Each area includes specific goals upon which we measure progress year on year.
