Internet and mobile trends – fuelling ICT carbon emissions

2012 Internet & Mobile Trends


Review:  The infographic gives you an idea of the continued rapid growth of the internet and mobile phone use and where the volume and growth is coming from. It’s this expansion in the use of technology, particularly in less developed countries, that’s fuelling globally Communications and Information Technology (ICT) emissions growth.

Hopefully a proportion of this technology use is being applied to solutions that minimise carbon emissions elsewhere, but probably not enough. That’s the reason the SMARTer 2020 report was released in Doha – to get governments to drive the point home.
