nbn releases 2020 Sustainability Report

nbn has released its first Sustainability Report, which takes stock of its ambitions to create a more sustainable Australia by unleashing the benefits of digital connectivity to homes, businesses and communities across the country.

With the initial build of the nbn network now complete, nbn has entered its next phase, to connect more Australians to its fast, reliable and secure broadband network. The launch of the Sustainability Report follows the release of nbn’s fourth Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which was published in November 2020 and outlines nbn’s First Peoples vision and commitments to reconciliation and digital inclusion.

Together, these reports lay the foundations of nbn’s commitments to working with communities to create a stronger, more inclusive nbn and Australia. The Sustainability Report outlines six sustainability material topics to help guide the organisation. The report outlines nbn’s aim to create social equity through digital inclusion and capability to maximise the benefits of connectivity for all Australians.

nbn also aims to empower individuals, businesses and communities to stimulate economic productivity and growth. The report details nbn’s goal to operate a trusted, secure and reliable network to provide all Australians with access to the essential communications infrastructure needed to be productive and stay connected.

Additionally, nbn strives to reduce emissions and address climate risks to support a more sustainable business, network and low-carbon Australia. The Sustainability Report also addresses nbn’s goal to set the example of a diverse, inclusive and healthy workforce, with a strong culture and high level of engagement. nbn also strives to demonstrate its values to create and maintain transparent, ethical and sustainable business practices.

Along with its Annual Report and Corporate Plan, nbn’s Sustainability Report will share the story of the value the nbn is creating for Australians in the long term, as well as providing the opportunity to be more transparent.

Going forward, the nbn strives to continue to refine and enhance the commitments it has laid out in the Sustainability Report, to evolve its operations and increase its focus on issues of sustainability. It also plans to provide access to the digital tools and services Australia will need as it moves through the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
