Halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2030: the Roadmap shows what’s needed in each sector. The digital revolution and market forces poised to drive economic transformation away from fossil fuels, but not without the right policy mix and bold climate leadership.
"As a sustainability pioneer, we have been both an advocate of climate action and investing in research and development of climate solutions. We believe leveraging technology, such as digitalisation and 5G, will be fundamental to halve emissions every decade. Ericsson have cut our own emissions by 50% and are working to meet further reductions. We have demonstrated solutions that help make it possible. Now other companies and policy-makers must act to scale demonstrated solutions to enable exponential reduction of carbon emissions globally".
Börje Ekholm, CEO and President Ericsson
Stronger policies, an acceleration of the digital revolution and greater climate leadership are necessary to fast track the economy-wide transformation needed, say the authors.
