Information and communications technology (ICT) offers the opportunity to address the threat of climate change while sustainably growing the world’s economies, but only if managed with the big picture in mind. Much more needs to be done to channel capital investments, deploy incentives for energy efficiency, and provide access to clean power to the ICT sector.

Hear how ICT provides a net reduction in GHG emissions within six industries, as detailed in the 2013 GeSI SMARTer 2020 report, and discover with NRDC how smart policy advocacy can help ICT become a bigger part of the solution.
