Social purpose

Creating a more sustainable future

For 2017 and beyond, we have set goals focusing on social outcomes in six specific areas:

  • The digital economy
  • Transforming healthcare
  • Caring for our environment
  • Providing access to education for children and youth
  • Creating a sense of security, protection and respect of privacy
  • Fostering more inclusive and equitable communities.

The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) include transformative global targets for participating countries, including Canada, that intend to shape policy development, organizational strategy and stakeholder engagement through 2030. In late 2015, TELUS joined many other Canadian companies to celebrate the launch of the SDGs through our patron member support of Global Compact Network Canada.

We believe TELUS is in a position to contribute directly in a meaningful way to six of the goals aligned to our current 2020 targets.

Looking forward to 2020 in health, education, digital economy, community, environment, and privacy and trust
