The Liberal Democrat party in the UK commissioned the report "A vision for Britain: Clean, Green and Carbon Free" where GeSI and the #SMARTer2030 was quoted. Here is what it says about GeSI:

"An important component of the technological change we expect in the 2020s and 2030s will come in the ICT sector – broadly defined – and this will enable further savings in carbon emissions through lifestyle changes such as e-health, e-learning and additional e-working, which could radically arrest or even reverse the expected growth in demand for transport and aviation especially. For example, a 2015 report from the Global eSustainability Initiative (GeSI) found that rolling out six ICT-enabled solutions across the economy (smart grids; optimised traffic control; e-working; e-commerce; smart agriculture and smart buildings), could save the UK a huge 0.18 Gt CO2e per year by 2030."
