10/13/2022 - How the Telco Sector can Change the Game for Climate Transformation

October 13th, 2022, 1 pm to 2 pm CEST

The climate impact of the ICT industry is often underestimated, yet it accounts for 3 to 4% of global CO2 emissions, about twice that of civil aviation. As a specific segment within the ICT industry, telco operators are committing to not only reduce their own emissions (scope 1 & 2) but also the emissions of their value chains (scope 3) which typically make up more than two-thirds of a telco’s total carbon emissions, and sometimes more than 90%.

To effectively address these scope 3 emissions, telco operators need to be able to collect and manage reliable and comparable data on the holistic climate maturity of their suppliers. Roman Friedrich, Managing Director and Partner at the Boston Consulting Group, will explain how this can be achieved with the help of automated solutions on the basis of AI algorithms, using practical examples at the CHOICE Event #44.

The following questions will be central:

  • Why is the telco sector so relevant for the climate transformation of the global economy?
  • What challenges do telcos need to overcome to effectively reduce their scope 3 emissions?
  • What opportunites do telcos have to help other industries become more energy efficient?
  • What trends are emerging in this regard for the future?

Our expert:

Dr. Roman Friedrich is a seasoned professional in the telecommunications industry serving telco operators across the globe with a strong focus on Germany, the Nordics, Russia, UK and Turkey. While having worked across the entire telecommunications value chain his current focus is very much on telco sustainability and on infrastructure/fiber deployment.
