Our ESG Approach

Our ESG Infrastructure

It’s one thing to want to create ubiquitous connectivity in challenging areas, and quite another to do so in a way that supports the forward growth of the communities and delivers strong returns on investments. Our ESG infrastructure is guided by a respectful, thoughtful, and accountable approach to business because those elements are critical for long-term success.

The Meaningful Components of Business Practice Excellence

Our environmental, social, and governance approach is inclusive of these key components:


To remain committed for the long-term to the people and communities we serve.


To best reflect the diversity of the people, their unique business needs, and the communities in which we serve.


To stay true to our business model, which contains Centers of Excellence administrative and governance overlays to the distinct and autonomous markets we serve.


To reliably and profitably serve our markets, inclusive of the occasionally volatile weather and climate.


To empower our people and communities to prosper through actions, offerings and beliefs.
