Moving Forward With SDGs: Metrics for Action
What metrics are needed to accelerate sustainable development opportunities?
There is a global trend underway by telecom companies to reduce costs and focus on connectivity and fixed-mobile convergence, particularly high revenue fiber and 5G services. Emerging markets are no exception, as the largest telecom companies in the region continue to look for new revenue streams to further diversify their businesses.
The corporate development team at this large telecom company in the region is responsible for enhancing the company’s performance by identifying and vetting appropriate M&A candidates to support the long term growth strategy. At the same time, the IR team is responsible for monitoring the competitive landscape and ongoing activities of important peer groups. Both teams needed easier access to a comprehensive set of data that would enable them to stay ahead of industry developments and capitalize on emerging opportunities.
