Atea’s Vision 2030

Atea’s mission is to build the future with IT. We believe that information technology, combined with knowledge and creativity, can improve living standards across society and help to achieve a more sustainable future. As one of Europe’s largest resellers of IT infrastructure, Atea is uniquely positioned to facilitate and accelerate a journey towards sustainable IT.

This is our goal with the Vision 2030 – to be a step ahead and drive positive change in our industry.

Sustainable Development Goals and Atea

Agenda 2030 was established by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action for global development. The agenda consists of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 underlying targets to be achieved by the end of this decade. It has been adopted by all UN member states.

Atea supports all 17 SDGs and focuses particularly on six goals: gender equality (Goal 5), decent work and economic growth (Goal 8), industry, innovation, and infrastructure (Goal 9), responsible consumption and production (Goal 12), climate action (Goal 13), and peace, justice, and strong institutions (Goal 16).
