What is the impact of ICT's environmental footprint on the production process? on cities? on households?
Share this

The responsibility of the ICT sector towards the environment is a key element of any CSR strategy.

Here we propose to discuss the impact of the following issues:

  1. the design, production, distribution, maintenance and disposal of ICT goods and services by the ICT industry;
  2. the application and use of ICTs throughout the economy and society, in government and public institutions, and in the research and academic communities;
  3. changes in economic and social structures and behaviour enabled by the availability, accessibility, application and use of ICT goods and services. This includes ICT goods and services that can actively help improve the environment and their potential to transform the behaviour, attitudes and values of individuals and economic and social structures.
