Elisa’s mission is a sustainable future through digitalisation. At Elisa, we want children to be able to live in sustainable world – now and in the future.
The digital world has expanded alongside the physical world and is an increasingly important operating environment, especially for children and young people. Children and young people use digital services fluently and meet their friends online. Their digital skills are often much better than their parents’ skills. On the other hand, parents may worry about online content that may be harmful to their kids.
Digitalisation brings with it many benefits for children, such as high-quality and inclusive education, virtual remote learning and access to information, but it is worth recognising the risks that exist on the internet. Harmful content or fake news, sexual abuse of children via the internet, cyberbullying and online violence can threaten children’s health and safety and violate their human rights. Not all children have access to the internet and digital content, either.
Diversity and digital inclusion of children and young people in a safe digital environment are important to Elisa, and we promote safe digitalisation in our own operations, in our collaboration with our partners, through the services we offer and in our social projects.
Elisa's own operations are based on our values, mission and guidelines, policies and guidelines. We are committed to the principles of the UN Global Compact, and we also follow Unicef's Children's Rights and Business Principles guidelines in our work.
