Current forecasts reveal that if not reduced, global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions set the world on a pathway toward a 3.5-degree increase in average global temperatures compared to pre-industrial times.

By joining the Paris Agreement at the COP21 in 2016, 194 countries committed to limiting global warming to a 2- or ideally 1.5-degree increase by 2050. For this to happen, CO2 emissions need to be at least halved by 2050, requiring a 7.6% de-crease in GHG emissions each year between 2020-2030.

Digital technologies are widely used across all sectors. The increased adoption of digital solution is especially visible on Consumer market, Business, Industry, Science and Health sector.

How the increased adoption of IT technologies has been impacting global GHG emissions? What are the underlying components of Digital Carbon Footprint? What need to be achieved to align ICT sector with 1.5º C GHG pathway and consequently, what are the 5 key areas to enhance IT Sustainability?

The Digital Carbon Footprint webinar will provide hints to answer these questions and get more wide perspective on IT sustainability.
