About this Category

In September 2015, the UN introduced its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) — a 17 point plan to end poverty, combat climate change and fight injustice and inequality. They are the biggest attempt in the history of the human race to make the world a better place.

Mobile networks have the power to accelerate this journey in a way no other technology can. That is why we are united in support for helping tackle the SDGs. As the first industry to come together and get behind the UN, we will continue to ensure that connectivity plays a key role in helping achieve the 17 targets by 2030. To-date we have connected over half the planet, our purpose underlies our commitment to continue on this path and help shape a world in which we all benefit from the opportunities that connectivity delivers.

This exceptional award highlights the very best examples of mobile connectivity – by the global mobile eco-system – in recognising the players who are supporting and contributing to one or several of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

This award is open to all organisations that provide mobile products, devices, services, solutions and applications
