Driven by our sustainable business strategy

Creating value for our stakeholders

Through our business model and strategy, we want to maximise the value we create for each of our stakeholders.

 - Safe, local employment with development opportunities for our people to reach their full potential.

- Increased efficiencies related to cost*, resources and environment compared to traditional operator-owned models.

- High customer service levels with minimised downtime.

 

 

 

*On average we provide a lease rate that is 30% lower than the total cost of ownership for a mobile network operators (MNO). This frees up MNO resources for investment in differentiated propositions and technology upgrades such as 4G.

 

- Increased mobile connectivity that can improve lives and livelihoods as well as driving social and economic development in Africa.

- Reduced impact through multiple operators sharing our towers.

- Climate impacts mitigated through energy and operational efficiencies.

- Job creation, skills and knowledge exchange and improved standards through our partnership approach.

 - Sustainable return on investment and value generation through execution of our strategy.
