In this paper, we forecast the future carbon footprint of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Entertainment and Media (E&M) sectors in the year 2020 including the ICT and E&M related impact from a networked society, i.e. a society where both people and things are connected and communicate with each other. We also discuss sector boundaries, the full impact from the networked society, uncertainty, use of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) as data source and important perspectives when assessing ICT.
