“Green Digital Action@COP28”: Leverage ICT’s positive impacts on the climate

The world is in a race to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Digital technologies can help – as the groundbreaking study “Digital with Purpose: Delivering a SMARTer2030” by the Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative shows. However, to fully realise the benefits of the digital transformation, the information and communication technology sector must take on a pioneering role.
In collaboration with the ITU-led Green Digital Action@COP28 initiative, the Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative, the Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of BMZ and the European Commission are joining forces to realise the full potential of digital technology towards a more sustainable and equitable world and to find innovative solutions to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
