Alcatel-Lucent has this week been taking part in Mobile World Congress, the annual congregation in Barcelona of the telecommunications industry. Except, increasingly, it isn’t just about telecommunications.
As the UN reviews what is next for the Millenniun Development Goals, some topics hold the key for what we need to commit next as a global community… Have we really done enough in Human Rights when women are still largely at the margin in many societies? What are ways we can promote economic development and what role can women play in it?
RobecoSAM’s Sustainability Yearbook 2014 features Alcatel-Lucent again as an industry leader. Each year, we highlight the results of our in-depth analysis of the sustainability performance of over 2,000 companies worldwide. The analysis focuses on industry-specific factors that we believe are important to long-term value creation and draws upon over 100 financially material economic, environmental, social and governance criteria.

I just returned from a Customer Experience Management (CEM) summit where I was struck by just how pervasive customer experience has become within the telco community. For two days, I listened intently to the presentations, round table discussions and corridor chatter of nearly 100 representatives from 50 different communications service providers (CSPs) around the world. What I heard was eye opening even to me, a long time customer experience advocate: Customer experience and its measurement are now top of mind for CSPs.
