Mission at Telia

Our mission at Telia is to contribute to the development of society, making Estonia a better place to live and work.

When initiating new projects or advancing ongoing ones, we always think about the environmental footprint or handprint of related activities. We take into account the danger of the digital divide and try to act so that no one is left behind.
We consider it important that all privacy and security requirements are met in the best possible way.

Contributing to important areas of impact, such as environmental protection, digital inclusion, privacy, and cybersecurity, are part of Telia’s values and business strategy.

The environment and circular economy

Digital inclusion

Privacy and security

Sustainability

We are also incorporating the UN Sustainable Development Goals into our strategies and innovative work, focusing the most on industry, infrastructure, more sustainable cities, and measures to combat climate change.

We also share the principles of peaceful and inclusive institutions. For us, gender equality, oceans and marine resources, employment, economic growth, global cooperation, and sustainable energy are all very important.

Our employees, clients, and partners make it possible to fulfil all of the set goals. In addition, we have joined several organisations and agreements to contribute to the development of society in general:

  • Telia is a member of the Green Tiger representative organisation – our goal is to create the basis for a development-oriented economy that is in balance with nature.
  • In 2018, Telia joined the Diversity Charter, where we affirmed that we respect the diversity of people and value the principles of equal treatment.
  • As a member of the Estonian Association of Information Technology and Telecommunications, we help to popularise the ICT sector, promote professional education, and improve legislation.
  • We are a member of the Innovative Companies Club of the Estonian Employers’ Confederation, which includes companies that invest at least 2% of their turnover in research and development activities.
  • Since 2021, we have been an investor member of the Responsible Business Forum, and a long-term regular member before that.
