etisalat by e& will use IBM sustainability software to support the company's environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy.
etisalat by e& is committed to monitoring, benchmarking, and enhancing its economic, environmental, and social performance, which aims to define clear ESG goals and create a clear roadmap to achieve them.
"We look forward to using IBM's technologies in the area of data, AI and automation to explore opportunities to support our ESG and sustainability goals, which are at the heart of our business model," said Khalid Murshed, chief technology officer, etisalat by e&.
"This can help reinforce our commitment to delivering innovative solutions that have a meaningful impact on people's lives and establish us as a valued provider."
