ICT reduction potential of 20% of global CO2e emissions by 2030

The Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) presented the #SMARTer2030 report which shows that ICT can enable a 20% reduction potential of global CO2e emissions by 2030 while its own emissions will decrease over time to 1.97%. Furthermore, ICT would offer significant environmental benefits in addition to reducing carbon emissions.

The #SMARTer2030 report is available as executive summary and full report. It is the third report after SMART2020 (2008) and SMARTer2020 (2012) and is based on detailed modelling and quantifies social and economic benefits of ICT.
