Why the Internet is Killing Our Climate – looking for more Sustainable Digitalisation
Digitalisation is often seen as key enabler for the change into a more sustainable world by bringing more efficient solutions.
But facing reality the whole ICT business is currently responsible for more than 3% of the global greenhouse gas emissions and therefore contributing very significantly to climate change. Furthermore the global energy consumption for digitalization is growing exponentially and there is currently no indication that a change of this unsustainable trend could be expected.
But how is digitalisation contributing to this? What are the reasons for this evolution? And how can we find ways to escape from it? This session will bring some answers to these questions.
