THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the most ambitious programme in history to address the major social and environmental problems facing humanity.
The Internet and digital solutions –based on connectivity– are essential for achieving more than half of the proposed goals: they improve the quality of life of people, facilitate equitable growth, and protect the planet.
They are the allies we use at Telefónica to help us build, all together, a better world where no one is left behind.
Our commitment to digital transformation is materialized in the ODS 9, which consists of “building resilient infrastructures, promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and encouraging innovation”. This is Telefónica’s main ODS, the one we have the most impact on.

In addition, we have projects focused on contributing to the other objectives, with a more direct influence on those related to economic growth. Despite our impact, we are aware of the many challenges that still have to be met and believe that sustainable innovation is a path to move forwards.
Telefónica and FAO have developed an alliance to encourage the introduction of technology and digitalization in agriculture and food value chains for this way to make the planet's resources more sustainable. This joint work contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: SDG2, SDG11, SDG12, SDG13, SDG17.
