Event - Sustainability Virtual Summits: Smart ICT

This free on-demand series is the first virtual conference an tradeshow to present a case for a future-oriented ICT industry, to respond quickly to the challenge of sustainability. This series summarizes the cutting-edge information and best practices that you need to support you in your sustainability journey.

The publication of the "Smart 2020" report by the Climate Group and the Global e-sustainability Initiative (GeSI), confirmed, to some extent, what we already knew. The ICT industry is the most likely key player in creating a low carbon society and could do a lot more to help push the world in this direction by 2020.

This series explores how corporations can reduce their environmental impact and become more socially responsible, while maintaining or even improving financial bottom lines. It discusses initiatives the ICT sector has undertaken to reduce its own environmental impact and it rxplains how the ICT sector can create an even bigger impact by introducing innovative services that other industries may benefit from.

There are many opportunities for the ICT industry, to replace goods and services with virtual equivalents and to provide technology to enable energy efficiency. This series explores how corporations can reduce their environmental impact and become more socially responsible, while maintaining or even improving financial bottom lines. More specifically, it discusses what initiatives the ICT sector has undertaken to reduce its own environmental impact, but also how it can create an even bigger impact by introducing innovative services that other industries may benefit from.

Smart ICT opportunities could lead to emission reductions five times the size of the sector’s own footprint by 2020 (up to 1,300 tons of CO2 savings). Telepresence to host these events, without compromising the sponsors and attendees experience.

Smart grids will be one of the major components of a new, low-carbon economy.
