#SMARTer2030: ICT Solutions for 21st Century Challenges

Access to new resource related to solving global problems added to PM World Library

15 February 2021 – A new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to solving major global problems.  The new resource is titled “#SMARTer2030: ICT Solutions for 21st Century Challenges“ and is a report by The Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) and Accenture Strategy, published in 2015.

GeSI is focused on researching and addressing climate change, and developing ideas to realize human potential and usher in an era of innovation and low-carbon growth. #SMARTer2030: ICT Solutions for 21st Century Challenges is the third report in a continuing series on this important topic and builds on an understanding of how interdependent we are across countries, industries, and cultures. Findings show an ICT-enabled world of 2030 that is cleaner, healthier and more prosperous, with greater opportunities for individuals everywhere. This report is based on in-depth modeling, unprecedented in its range, into the potential for ICT to disrupt business as usual and to reshape radically the way we live, as well as reducing the impact that continuous economic growth has on the environment. It shows how ICT can help break the link between economic development and resource depletion, with emissions savings close to ten times those generated by the ICT sector itself.

GeSI is a strategic partnership of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) companies and organizations committed to creating and promoting technologies and practices to foster economic, environmental and social sustainability. Formed in 2001, GeSI’s vision is a sustainable world through responsible, ICT-enabled transformation. Accenture plc. is a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, with more than 323,000 people serving clients in more than 120 countries.
