Environment and climate change

Environment and climate change

Active in the area of climate change for well over a decade, ITU is now making climate change a key priority, with strategies to:

Reduce the environmental impact of climate change through:

  • The creation of a standard methodology for calculating carbon footprint;

  • The promotion of next-generation networks (NGNs) (reducing power consumption by up to 40%); and

  • Publishing online rather than in print.

Harness the power of ICTs through:

  • Remote collaboration;

  • Intelligent transport systems; and

  • Sensor-based networks based on RFID and telemetry.

Monitor climate change by:

    • Conducting and managing studies on remote-sensing; and

    • Providing key climate data via radio-based applications.
