We have been an active lead to creating an impact through 6 of the SDGs, including Affordable and Clean Energy (G7); Industry Innovation and Infrastructure (G9); Sustainable Cities and Towns (G11); Responsible Consumption and Production (G12); Climate Action (G13) and Partnerships (G17). We are recognised as an important contributor to sustainable social, economic and environmental development. Compliance with SDGs is an important part of our business plans and growth, and we provide smart solutions that continue to impact the SDGs.

G7 and G12 aim to ensure access to affordable, reliable and modern energy for all, as well as consumption and production patterns. G17 strengthens the means of implementation and revitalises the global partnership. We produce intelligent devices with interchangeable sensor heads capable of reading consumption data from a wide range of meters. Based on extensive expertise in connected devices, we also offer the IoT platform for intelligent energy management, which strengthens the means of implementation. We are powered by innovation and effectiveness, both hardware and software of our cloud-based solutions developed internally. G9, G11 and G13 further reflect the strengths of NorthQ.

G9 enhances the development of a resilience infrastructure, the promotion of inclusive and sustainable industrialisation, and the promotion of innovation. We provide cloud infrastructure, performance analysis and IoT solutions that enable our customers to develop technologies and businesses in line with the SDGs.

G11 promotes cities and human settlements to be inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. We develop intelligent solutions for commercial building automation, cost reduction, energy optimisation and user behavior guidance.

G13 calls on people to take urgent action to combat climate change and its effects. We address emerging issues of technical, social and economic importance through the Internet connectivity and data analysis that promise to change the way people work, live and play.

In the future, we will continue to work closely with industry and academic partners to develop sustainable solutions that meet more of the SDGs. We are committed to achieving the goals of sustainable development in our work. Our mission is to provide customers with the best solutions and services to create a more energy-efficient, environment-friendly and sustainable world.
