Alcatel-Lucent has been a founding member of GeSI since 2001. As a company, we firmly believe in the role of pro-active dialogue and partnership with new stakeholders to respond to the world's key sustainability challenges. And each year, the value of GeSI membership has both increased in relevance to our business as well as stakeholder engagement. As the areas of ICT towards sustainable living increase, the need for thought leadership and focused actions become more critical. GeSI working groups are focused on relevant actions and results for our industry and the globe's key challenges. Alcatel-Lucent benefits from both the opportunity to share our expertise, lead and learn from stakeholders and go forward internally, better informed and externally with a greater understanding of our sectors’ needs by working with relevant partners.
GeSI does demand active participation; in return we are rewarded with relevant insights, enhanced relationships and more comprehensive and coordinated solutions to industry issues.
