The powerful combination of 5G and the internet of things, complemented by supporting players such as mobile edge computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, are billed as key to digitizing vertical industries and commerce. The same companies looking to buy and sell this connected digital transformation are also grappling with the long-term implications of individual and collective sustainability.
Network energy performance is an increasingly prevalent issue for mobile network operators (MNOs) in North America. If 5G is deployed in the same way as previous generations, energy consumption of mobile networks would increase dramatically. This is unsustainable in terms of cost as well as environmental impact.
Ericsson delivered on its sustainability targets and made a series of new commitments in 2021. The company put a particular focus on energy performance and strengthening its ambition to reach Net Zero across its value chain by 2040.
In 2021 Ericsson introduced a new vision to improve lives, redefine business and pioneer a sustainable future. Building on decades as a sustainability pioneer, the company has made a strong commitment to fulfilling this vision through its own efforts and through working across and beyond the ICT ecosystem.
This focus is reflected in Ericsson’s latest Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Report, which highlights its 2021 performance across the areas of responsible business, environmental sustainability and digital inclusion.
