Back in 2008, GeSI launched the first report of the SMART series, the SMART2020, followed by SMARTer2020 in 2012. Now in 2015, the #SMARTer2030 report has been launched with the aim to extend our horizon to 2030 and to look at ICT-enabled sustainability from a holistic point of view.
This report shows that ICT has the potential to enable a 20% reduction of global CO2e emissions by 2030, thus holding emissions at 2015 levels, and to effectively decouple economic growth from emissions growth. The SMARTer2030 also illustrates through a number of case studies what successful applications ICT can have in everyday life. It contains recommendations to decision-makers, businesses and consumers on what actions are needed to make the most of the technology benefits.
