The ICT sector is required to contribute to the fight against climate change by making society aware of the importance of digitisation and virtualisation and reducing the need for the physical movement of people and things.

Specifically:

  • audio/video conferencing and agile working services reduce the need for people to travel;
  • online invoicing and payments save paper (and therefore the energy required to produce and transport it) and eliminate the need for transport to make payments;
  • telemedicine services reduce travel for medical visits;
  • infomobility systems, using information obtained from mobile handsets, allow the optimisation of traffic flows, reducing travel times and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • systems for the monitoring and analysis of consumption allow the optimisation of the energy efficiency of offices and dwellings.

The efficiency improvements, savings achievable in economic terms and reduced environmental impacts associated with the effective use of these services are a real business opportunity for the company. Awareness is growing among stakeholders and citizens in general of the need to achieve significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to ensure a sustainable future for society and the planet.
