A Royal Society Report, "Digital Technology and the Planet - Harnessing Computing to achieve net zero" reports that Digital technology is embedded in our daily lives and in every sector, so it has a critical and growing part to play in delivering a net zero future. Nearly a third of the 50% carbon emissions reductions the UK needs to make by 2030 could be achieved through existing digital technology – from sensors to largescale modelling.

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.
