Telecommunication and Technology Sustainability Working Group (TTSWG), a Nigerian pro-technology and non-governmental organisation that advocates for sustainability in the ICT sector, has announced the launch of its secretariat in Lagos, Nigeria.
TTSWG’s main vision is for Nigeria to be an inspiration to other developing countries in adopting sustainability best practices. Potential member organisations that fit the criteria for joining TTSWG stand to gain several attractive privileges such as, access to networking opportunities with other industry players, regulators, and key industry decision-makers. In addition, TTSWG offers its members the opportunity to define the sustainability direction for the telecommunication and technology industries.
In order to address a wide range of issues concerning sustainability in the ICT sector, the organisation has released a number of publications on ttswg.org, its website, which include: “Tech for Good Initiatives in Nigeria”; “Managing ICT Emissions and Environment Pollution in Nigeria”; and “50 Financially Impactful ICT Innovations in Nigeria.”
Speaking about the launch, Elizabaeth Odeniyi, a senior consultant at the secretariat, said, “The Secretariat, designed to run the day-to-day activities of the TTSWG, has since inception achieved different milestones, including but not limited to the publication of enriching research, fruitful sustainability projects, and solid collaborations.”
While talking about the goals of the organization, Elizabeth also said, “Our strategy encompasses creating a desirable and sustainable future for the telecommunication and technology industries, and we are certain of our success in this regard.”
TTWSG has secured national partnerships and is working closely with critical organisations in the ICT sector on its advocacy for industry sustainability, including the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology (FMST); National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA); the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC); and the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI).
