GeSI Smarter2030 and other studies/initiatives in 2015

GeSI has produced a series of high profile studies in recent years, and this has continued in 2015.

VimpelCom is a member of GeSI and this organization has been focusing on the potential for ICT to play a leading role in combating climate change. GeSI has produced a series of high profile studies in recent years, and this has continued in 2015, with initiatives including:

  • 'GeSI Mobile Carbon Impact. How mobile communications technology is enabling carbon emissions reduction' (http://gesi.org/ news?news_id=94). Authored by the Carbon Trust, the report analyzes the use of mobile technology in Europe and the US, finding that it enables savings of more than 180 million tonnes of carbon emissions a year, with the largest savings currently being made in the operation of buildings and transportation. This is an amount greater than the total annual emissions of the Netherlands and five times higher than the emissions from mobile networks.
  • The SMARTer2030 report (http:// smarter2030.gesi.org/), which extends previous analysis horizons to 2030, and looks at ICT-enabled sustainability from a holistic point of view. The report shows that ICT has the potential to enable a 20% reduction of global CO₂e emissions by 2030, thus holding emissions at 2015 levels, and so effectively decoupling economic growth from emissions growth. SMARTer2030 also contains recommendations to decision-makers, businesses and consumers on what actions are needed to make the most of the technology benefits.
