This report reviews key ICT trends and provides an overview of the impact that ICTs have on the environment and climate change as well as their role in helping mankind to mitigate and adapt to these changes.



Impact and Mitigating Effects of ICTs

Life cycle assessments demonstrate that ICTs have an environmental cost and impact as a result of their manufacture, use and disposal. ICTs can also mitigate environmental impact either directly by substituting or replacing actions with digital processes that are more environmentally friendly and efficient and/or by modifying human behavior resulting in actions that reduce or eliminate environmental impact.
