Scope and Principles

Telenor Group is committed to report relevant data on social and environmental performance, focusing on material issues and communicating its progress.

By reporting our performance, we aim to ensure a clear link between our business strategy and our social and environmental performance indicators and activities. Telenor has over the last years strengthened the data quality of its non-financial reporting through further development of its reporting guidelines, internal audits in several business units and external assurance of key data.

External Verification

DNV GL has been commissioned by Telenor to carry out an independent review of the Sustainability Report 2019, in particular to assess the accuracy of non-financial claims. The engagement has been undertaken in accordance with the requirements in the ISAE 3000 standard as well as DNV GL’s general method for assessments of sustainability reporting.

Materiality Assessment

Telenor Group has carried out a materiality assessment on sustainability issues to ensure that its Sustainability Report for 2019 will cover topics that reflect that the company’s economic, environmental, and social impacts are aligned with major stakeholders to the company or to the global mobile and internet industry sectors.
