About Our Sustainability Report
"The Report aims to provide balanced, accurate and accessible information on our strategy and performance, including key challenges and opportunities that we encountered in 2019".
Welcome to MTN Nigeria Communications PLC's (MTN Nigeria) maiden Sustainability Report. As a proud member of the MTN Group, sustainability is embedded into our core business strategy and provides us with significant social, environmental and economic challenges and opportunity. Sustainability in industry seeks to use business as a fool and an enabler to address the effect of business on the environment and society while creating economic value. In this maiden report and our subsequent sustainability reports, we will be disclosing our performance on key sustainability issues that affect our business and stakeholders.
This Report outlines MTN Nigeria's sustainability approach, topics that are material to us and our stakeholders, our management approach to material topics, and our 2019 performance and impact. It also covers our activities across Nigeria for the period between 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2019 and complements our annual report for the same period. The Report aims to provide balanced, accurate and accessible information on our strategy and performance, including key challenges and opportunities that we encountered in 2019.
