Our global commitment

Eltel has a long-term commitment to several global sustainability initiatives. Our commitment, together with stakeholder dialogue on relevant topics, shapes our strategic decision making, and provides a roadmap for creating more value as a partner, employer and investment opportunity.

Our external commitments are essential to improve transparency with stakeholders and help us to develop our understanding of the sustainability impacts our business has on the world.

CDP – climate change and water

Eltel has reported to the CDP climate change program since 2016 and to the CDP water program since 2023.

UN Global Compact

Since 2014, Eltel has been a signatory to the UN Global Compact and its ten principles on human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption. The principles are embedded in our strategy, policies and procedures, and related processes.


In 2023, the entire Eltel Group was rated by EcoVadis for the first time. We were awarded bronze for our work on the environment, labor and human rights, ethics and
responsible procurement.

Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a roadmap for how we can collectively work to overcome the global challenges related to economic, social and environmental sustainability.

Eltel supports all the SDGs, but as a sustainability leader in the infranet industry, we believe we can make the greatest contribution to seven of the goals under the broad themes of “responsible employer”, “sustainable communities” and “climate and the environment”.



Responsible employer

Eltel provides fair and decent work for its own employees and the employees of its supply chain partners, promotes health and safety, and supports workplace diversity and gender equality.



Sustainable communities

Eltel constructs and maintains infranets that are increasingly essential for the needs of businesses and individuals.




Climate and the environment

The infranet solutions Eltel provides enable the transition to a robust, resilient and carbon-neutral society. Eltel also works actively to reduce the climate impact of its own operations and aligns its business with circular economy principles, efficient waste management and responsible material sourcing.
