Decarbonization is a must in today’s TMT market
Telecommunications, Media and Technology (TMT) organizations experience constant growth in carbon emission, as the importance of access to content and the ability to communicate increases worldwide.
- The contribution of the IT sector to humanity’s carbon footprint represents 3.8% of global GHG emissions (EcoAct 2020 Sustainability Performance Report). With global data traffic expected to grow around 60% per year, the industry’s share will grow further unless investments in energy efficiency and renewables can offset the effect. (Source: bcg)
- With streaming platforms ever hungry for content, demand for TV and film production is set to increase at a phenomenal rate. The rate of increase is such that by 2022, video viewing will account for 82% of all internet traffic.
Digitalization enabling decarbonization
Telecoms, Media and Technology organizations have opportunities to use digital technologies to recognize the importance of timely and data-driven net zero strategies and decision making, decarbonize their own operations and supply chains while supporting the sustainability goals of other industries. In partnership with governments, public agencies, supply chains and communities, we have a vital role in helping shift public awareness and behavior towards a more innovative, inclusive and green society.
