Environment

The circular economy encapsulates our approach to environmental sustainability. This includes how we manage environmental impacts of our company, products and services, and how ICT can help mitigate climate change impacts. We aim to establish leadership in energy performance, use a circular approach in management of materials, waste and water, as we develop and deliver solutions to support climate action.

Product Energy Performance

Product energy performance

As mobile networks expand to reach new markets, and existing network traffic rises, growth must be managed to achieve better energy performance. Ericsson has developed solutions that enable operator networks to use as little energy as possible while managing expected growth in data traffic meeting the needs of both current and future 5G networks.

ICT has a unique potential to enable other industrial sectors move towards the low-carbon economy that will be central to meeting the SDGs. According to Ericsson research, ICT solutions could help to reduce GHG emissions by up to 15 percent by 2030, amounting to around 10 gigatonnes of CO2e – more than the current carbon footprint of the EU and US combined. However, ICT must be implemented with the intention to address climate change, to measure carbon reduction progress and to support decision makers to take correct measures.
