Axiata is increasingly committed towards a digital and greener future as we transition ourselves into a New Generation Digital Champion, where digitalisation is a priority. We strive to apply this in all areas of our business, including the way we present our Annual and Sustainability Reports to our shareholders and stakeholders. Each year, close to 6000 readers accessed our reports on digital platforms through the web and App downloads. This is well over three times the number of printed copies. In our efforts to further digitalise our ecosystem, whilst being mindful of our carbon footprint, we continue to expand our digital reports. For these reasons, we have reduced our printed Annual Report by 100 pages in being more efficient with the layout and in using less photos. Further to this, we have used environmentally friendly paper and have reduced the use of colour printing by going black and white with this Annual Report. Incorporating these changes, we have remained uncompromising on our required disclosure and content.
Axiata is one of the leading telecommunications groups in Asia with approximately 320 million subscribers in ten countries.
In pursuit of our vision to be a New Generation Digital Champion by 2020, Axiata pieces together the best in the region in terms of innovation, connectivity and talent.Our Group Profile
