Achieving Environmental Sustainability with Digital Technology
As the world continues to digitalize and close the digital divides, there is a massive expansion in the adoption of digital technologies and related infrastructure. We need to ensure this does not cause an exponential increase in energy consumption and e-wastes, nor have negative environmental impact across the supply chains of digital technologies.
The recent advances in technology offer ground-breaking opportunities to monitor and protect the environment, as well as overall planetary health. By harnessing these appropriately, the digital revolution can be steered to advance global sustainability, environmental stewardship and human well-being.
