Ericsson is participating and contributed to Exponential Climate Action Roadmap report launched at the Global Climate Action Summit 2018. The report shows the potential for all sectors of the global economy - energy, technology, food and agriculture, industry, buildings and transport - to halve greenhouse gas emissions by around 2030.
Science-based targets provide companies with a clearly defined pathway to future-proof growth by specifying how much and how quickly they need to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. In 2017 Ericsson bolstered our commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement by joining the Science Based Target initiative, which aims to reduce the carbon footprint by 35% in 2022.
We manage the environmental impact of our own activities with a particular focus on carbon footprint. Learn about our continuous work to reduce emissions from our own activities—and how we achieved a CO2e drop of nearly 50% over the past six years.
Reducing energy consumption and CO2e is a priority for the telecommunications industry. It is possible for operators to manage ever increasing data traffic, improve app coverage and lower energy consumption when energy performance is addressed for entire network.
Since Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a carbon-lean sector that accounts for less than 2% of global CO2 emissions, we advocate for ICTbased solutions, such as the Internet of Things, as a viable means for cities and society to reduce carbon footprints.
