COMMENTS FROM THE CEO
AN EVENTFUL YEAR
Telia Company is now basically a Nordic and Baltic company as we have completed the divestment of the operations in Eurasia in all material aspects. Now we can put all efforts and resources into developing the company in our home markets including our global carrier operation. We meet our customer under the Telia brand in six countries and the subsidiaries become more and more integrated into the group.
President and CEO
Telia Company should stop being on the planet's minus account to instead become part of the solution to the climate problem and the environmental impact.
COMMENTS FROM THE CHAIR
OUR ENVIRONMENT IS CHANGING AND SO ARE WE
The Board of Directors that joined me in 2013 received a comprehensive change mandate from the shareholders of Telia Company. Since then, we’ve made major changes and during 2018, we divested our companies in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Leaving Eurasia took longer than planned, but we took the time we needed. The most important thing was to exit the right way and responsibly, without rushing.
Chair of the Board
The ability to rethink and think again distinguishes well-managed companies. New parts are added at one end while old parts are removed or refurbished in the other. That is how it should be.

FOR A SUSTAINABLE TOMORROW
OUR APPROACH TO SUSTAINABILITY
Telia Company's President and CEO Johan Dennelind together with a group of Nordic CEOs launched a coalition on the advancement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in the Nordics. A key objective is to explore ways to deliver more impact through collaboration and responsible business practices.
Divestments of assets in region Eurasia underwent strict due diligence carried out by both internal and external expertise. Due diligence covered for example identifying Ultimate Beneficiary Owners (UBOs) and anti-money laundering controls. Human Rights Impact Assessments on the companies were earlier conducted by external expertise.
