Pivoting to Green Initiatives


The resolutions and declarations from the Glasgow Climate Change Conference event were mixed and more could have been done but at least nation states, industries, and societies are starting to pivot to greater green initiatives. The telecom industry has also been taking green initiatives more seriously. Clearly, the telecommunications sector provides substantial benefits to societies and economies, but it cannot ignore its green economy obligations. Reducing carbon footprint, optimizing the consumption of resources, and being energy efficient will be the main expectations of the telecoms industry. Efficient data transmission enables the reduction in energy consumption, which contributes to lower carbon emissions. With networks being the foundation of digital services, telecommunication operators play a key role in mitigating the adverse impacts that arise from the surge in data consumption. Technological innovation would help to support a greener Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry.
