Enabling the Global Goals: Evidence of digital solutions' impact on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

July 31st, 2018

GeSIConnect has launched its new report, "Enabling the Global Goals: Evidence of digital solutions' impact on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)." This report shares new, compelling evidence that the digital sector is positively linked to achieving the SDGs.

Along with this report, they have also launched a website where main findings and case studies will be showcased, and most importantly, will allow the digital industry to track its contribution to the SDGs with the GeSI Digital Access Index (DAI) developed for this project.

IEEE talks on The Institute: Jaafar Elmirghani

March 8th, 2018

Jaafar Elmirghani, Co-Chair of the IEEE Green ICT Initiative, appeared in the January 12, 2018 edition of The Institute on January 12, 2018. IEEE Green ICT Initiative seeks to reduce the technology’s impact on the environment. That is the impetus of green ICT—making this technology more energy efficient and thus reducing its carbon footprint. This principle, plus one that would use ICT to “green” other areas, were the central ideas of the IEEE Greening Through ICT Summit, held in October in Paris.

Why ubiquitous broadband and green ICT go hand-in-hand

August 21st, 2017

Charles Despins, Co-Chair for the IEEE Green ICT Initiative, has published an interesting article in the Aug. 15, 2017 issue of SmartCitiesDive Magazine advocating that city planners, managers, citizens and other stakeholders should recognize broadband as essential infrastructure, just like water and power.  They should leverage its contribution to economic development, a clean environment and healthy social fabrics, particularly when globalization and shifts in traditional manufacturing paradigms put their communities at risk.
