Provision on ICTs
The use and application of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in economic and social life is rapidly increasing throughout the world. For example it is estimated that there are now some 6 billion mobile phone users and over 2.4 billion Internet users.
The ICT industry has a major challenge to minimize its own emissions in the face. of such phenomenal growth. This calls for the adoption and implementation of additional standards for increased energy efficiency of networks and services.
However, what is very clear is that it is only through the implementation of measures including the wide application of ICTs that the necessary reduction in total global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions can be achieved.
