Vodafone Egypt launches its annual sustainability report for 5th year in a row

As a strategic partner and member of the British Egyptian Business Association (BEBA), Vodafone Egypt has on Sunday released its annual sustainability report during a breakfast briefing organised by BEBA.

This is the fifth consecutive year in a row for the telecom giant to release its sustainability report.

Vodafone Egypt is the first telecom operator to report on its sustainability efforts following the ESG approach metrics, on a voluntarily basis.

The report has been issued digitally for two consecutive years, such a milestone adds to the shift to a digital interactive format, as part of the company’s endeavour to raise awareness, both internally and externally about sustainability.

With a commitment to further bolstering transparency, the report seeks to showcase the company’s responsible and sustainable approach to addressing the economic, social, and environmental impacts stemming from its operations. The move underscores Vodafone Egypt’s leadership in the industry, establishing benchmarks for others to emulate and incorporate comparable sustainability practices across their operations.

During BEBA’s breakfast briefing, a panel discussion was held under the title “Digital Enablement to Accelerate the SDGs: Private Sector’s Role”. The panel was attended by Gareth Bayley, British Ambassador to Egypt; Mohamed Abdullah, CEO of Vodafone Egypt; Rawhi Afaghani, Deputy Resident Representative of UNDP Egypt; Nada Al-Agizi, Director of Sustainable Development and International Cooperation Department at the League of Arab States; and Maged Ezz ElDeen, Country Senior Partner and Deals Leader at PwC. It was moderated by Ayman Essam, External Affairs and Legal Director at Vodafone Egypt.

Over the past 25 years, Vodafone Egypt has consistently solidified its position as a key player in digital transformation and communications infrastructure in the country. With a customer base exceeding 47 million, encompassing nearly half of Egypt’s population, the telecom giant has been playing a pivotal role in shaping the nation’s connectivity landscape.

Beyond telecommunications, Vodafone Egypt is dedicated to further enhancing the lives of millions of Egyptians through a huge portfolio of initiatives such as Vodafone Cash, the e-wallet and financial services market leader for financial inclusion, the educational platform Ta3limy, and V-Hub serving SMEs across all sectors. This is in addition to several fruitful partnerships with governmental entities to provide multiple technological solutions, among which digitalising the Universal Health Insurance hospitals and the Egyptian Universities’ Hospitals.
