Toward a more sustainable and
equitable future

At Verizon, our mission is to deliver the promise of the digital world by empowering people to generate innovation and positive change. CEO Hans Vestberg believes that 5G will not only provide a quantum leap in connectivity – it will also unleash exciting new opportunities to address the most pressing environmental and social challenges we face today. In addition to serving as Chairman and CEO of Verizon, Hans is a current member of the Leadership Council of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Solutions Network. He is also a board member of the UN Foundation, the Whitaker Peace & Development Initiative, and Childhood USA (part of the Queen of Sweden’s World Childhood Foundation).

Our company’s very purpose is to connect people to each other – to bring people together across cultures to solve important problems.

It can be difficult for one person to change the world, but as a company with over 144,000 creative, passionate employees and millions of valued customers, we have an opportunity to make our mark on issues that matter. Together, we can use our shared ingenuity to take the world in a better direction.
