Mobile & Health

Dr Jack Rowley, Director Research & Sustainability, GSMA discusses topics on Mobile & Health.

Mobile communications has the potential to make direct and indirect contributions to reducing the environmental impacts of other areas of the economy. Areas of potential contribution include using mobile broadband for more efficient use of alternative energy sources; support for teleworking; using a person's mobile phone to register their presence so that heating or lighting can respond; real-time freight management; and dematerialisation -- replacing physical items (such as CDs) with digital downloads. It has been estimated that through enabling other sectors to reduce their emissions, the information and communications technology industry could reduce global emissions by as much as 15 per cent by 2020 -- a volume of CO2 five times its own footprint.
