Today, nearly half of the global population has internet access through computers, tablets, and mobile phones. Digital technologies make our society more connected, reliable, efficient and intelligent. However while digitalization has opened up unbelievable opportunities for individuals and organizations, it also puts a heavy price on carbon emissions. How much carbon footprint does the information and communications technology (ICT) sector produce? Is consumer use a major cause of the carbon intensity associated with the ICT sector? Can digital technologies help with reducing global emissions? How business community react to the market demand on sustainable digitalization? What are the strategic advantages for companies from adapting to this new market demand? In this webinar, we will examine these questions and take a broad look at the tools and drivers of an energy efficient and sustainable digitalization movement.
