Sustainability and social responsibility

Sustainable development for communities, businesses and citizens

At GlobalConnect, we are proud to contribute to sustainable development across Northern Europe, for companies and organizations, as well as for the individual. Our contributions can mainly be tracked to our constantly expanding Pan-Nordic fiber network, but we are also determined to keep creating and delivering ever-evolving connectivity solutions that enables a better functioning society today, and tomorrow.

A world dependent on digital connections

Today, all parts of society depend on connectivity, and its importance just keeps on increasing day by day. A robust and fast network connection enables better cooperation between different countries, more flexibility in working life, new opportunities for residents in isolated rural areas reducing exclusion, and much more. The digitization of our society also reduces the need for travel, which directly contributes to lower emissions.

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed our digital usage patterns and a lot of people suddenly needed increased capacity in their home offices and home schools. It has been crucial for us to deliver on those needs, and during this time we have truly seen the value of a robust and secure network throughout Scandinavia. Every day, 24 hours a day, we monitor and operate our Nordic network, which also extends to Helsinki to the east, Berlin in the south and Amsterdam to the west.

A sustainable workplace

Sustainability is also the way we run our business. Diversity and equality are our priorities and we regularly measure both the well-being and development of all our employees. We are constantly working to find more environmentally friendly ways to operate our offices, data centers, networks and other locations.

In September 2020, GlobalConnect and IP-Only truly came together as one company when GlobalConnect became the name of our entire business in the corporate market. We also have the IP-Only and Homenet brands on the private market. Our sustainability report for 2019 is the first to include goals and measures for the entire group. In the future, we will work determined to have an even stronger and coordinated strategy for sustainability within the group.
