We support the societies in which we operate by empowering employees, providing inclusive connectivity and accelerating financial inclusion.
Building digital platforms to drive digital transformation across Africa and the Middle East is a pivotal part of serving societies’ interests. The digital revolution is a powerful agent for transforming society for the better; conversely, a lack of access to the digital world creates wider social and economic disparities.
As one of Africa’s largest digital operators, MTN plays a pivotal role in addressing considerable gaps in access to connectivity by driving mobile and internet adoption. Connectivity provides access to financial technology (fintech) and digital solutions that pave the way for participation in economic activities and education, enhancing lives and strengthening communities.
We strive to always conduct business that supports the long-term sustainability of societies in which we operate. To meet these objectives, we have defined several positions that guide us in operating ethically, respectfully and in rights-driven ways that has the least negative impacts.
Supporting the long-term sustainability of societies
MTN strives to conduct business in a way that is respectful of the rights of all people. We believe in the rights of all people to communicate, access and share information freely and responsibly, and to enjoy privacy and security regarding their data and their use of digital communications.
Wherever we operate, MTN adheres to a culture of sound ethical business conduct that generates economic value for the benefit of our communities and stakeholders. We do so in a manner that is eco-responsible and sustainable. We remain steadfast in our efforts to ensure a strong ethical culture within our business.
We believe all our activities, including CSI, should align with the digital transformation strategy for Africa and leverage our position within the ICT ecosystem. Our country-based MTN foundations are the conduit between the Group and the communities that benefit from our CSI activities. The programmes are beneficiary focused, targeting youth and women empowerment.
MTNers believe in a better future and work hard to bring the benefits of a modern connected life to everyone across our markets. Supporting, protecting, and enabling MTNers requires agility and flexibility to ensure they adapt and thrive in the rapidly changing environment. We aim to create an inspiring environment, as a result, we have crafted an employee value proposition with an emphasis on the future to encourage our employees to think differently about tomorrow.
In a globalised world, organisations must rely on and work with one another to succeed. As a result, we rely on a complex and multilayer global supply chain to provide our customers with the products and services that they need. We have embedded integrity into our supply chains by managing different legal, social, ethical and environmental risks and ensuring that our suppliers have sustainable business practices in place.
