The Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative (GeSI), an institutional member of GCF, and Deloitte have launched a landmark report on “Digital with Purpose: Delivering a SMARTer2030” with the help from an international Expert Panel including Jeffrey Sachs, Christiana Figueres, and GCF chairperson Prof. Carlo Jaeger, among others.
The report finds that digital technologies, if deployed with positive societal impact in mind, will help accelerate progress toward the SDGs by 22% and mitigate downward trends by 23% on average. The report further finds that by 2030, digital technologies will deliver reductions in carbon emissions equivalent to nearly seven times the size of the growth in the ICT sector emissions footprint over the same period.
