There has been a general perception that carbon emissions are a necessary component for economic growth. Yet innovation and technology provide unprecedented opportunities to break the link between economic growth and increasing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.

In this presentation William Ehmcke will look at measuring ICT sustainability as well as applying smart ICT to 21st century problems. If you believe that ICT has a greater economic, environmental and social benefit beyond managing online auctions, video on-demand and social media – then you should attend.
