EURECA informs the UK All Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group report on ICT energy consumption, titled: “Is Staying Online Costing the Earth”. The report looked at the carbon footprint and energy consumption of different parts of the internet, as well as the potential for internet-connected tech to enable further reductions in carbon emissions in other sectors in the UK. The report has brought together independent and industry experts with parliamentarians to consider the issues in this area and made a number of recommendations for policymakers.
The report will be launched officially at the House of Lords on Tuesday 20th February 2018.
