Digital Society Impact: Where Technology Meets Sustainability
Published: January 7, 2020 Content info: 11 Pages

This is the first of a series of reports on the role the ICT industry plays in helping achieve sustainability-related goals. As such, the report focuses on setting the scene and providing some initial background and common concepts for future reference, as well as sharing some examples of leading providers using innovative technologies to achieve sustainable development goals."IDC's Digital Society Impact initiative aims to investigate the impact the ICT industry has on the key sustainability subjects - people/individuals, communities, and the planet - beyond the obvious economic consequences, either through the provision of solutions and technologies or via the direct and indirect actions of its players. Technology vendors - whether hardware, software, or any other type of player - have a great deal to offer in terms of supporting their clients to create sustainable solutions and transform their businesses into sustainable and environmentally friendly operations." - Senior Research Director Marta Munoz, IDC EMEA.
