(3BL Media) May 11, 2012 - Ericsson's 2011 Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility report, entitled Technology for Good, highlights the company's ongoing efforts to help create a more sustainable world. Read the report: here

Ericsson believes that the transformational power of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) that can both spur socio-economic development and put us on the path to a low-carbon economy has never been greater.

Key highlights include:

Urbanization and sustainable cities - Ericsson recognizes the increasingly important role of cities in future sustainable development:
• Ericsson became a founding member of the New Cities Foundation, an institution dedicated to improving quality of life and work in a 21st century global city.
• Ericsson's CEO chaired the Climate Change Working Group of the Broadband Commission, which delivered a report that made high-level policy recommendations on ICT's role in tackling climate change. "The Broadband Bridge: Linking ICT with Climate Action for a Low-Carbon Economy".

Energy efficient solutions - The ICT industry can help lead the transition to a low-carbon economy through greater resource efficiency:
• Ericsson has increased 3G/4G energy efficiency by 85% in radio base stations over the last decade.

Positive socio-economic impacts of ICT - Ericsson takes a holistic approach to meeting the needs of the "last" billion users at the base of the pyramid, enabling communication for all:
• Key initiatives such as Connect To Learn, Refugees United and Ericsson Response made significant progress in 2011.

Human Rights and freedom of expression
• During 2011, Ericsson committed to work actively with the new UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, and strengthened internal due diligence processes in light of this.
