Overview Edit

This report gives a clear picture of the key role that the ICT industry plays in addressing climate change globally and facilitating efficient and low carbon development. The role of ICT not only includes emission reduction and energy savings in the ICT sector itself, but also benefits from the adoption of ICT technologies to influence and transform the way our society works and the way people behave.

Unlocking the universal potential of clean technology in the information systems sector is a critical step toward a low carbon future. Silicon Valley innovators and the growing support of clean tech investors in California place the state in a unique position to lead the effort to combat global warming.
