GeSI launched a project to explore in detail the different ways in which ICT can contribute to making the SDGs become reality. The results of the project were unveiled on June 14, 2016 in Washington, DC in the course of the event Innovating Our Way towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The SMARTer2030 Action Coalition has as mission to realize the vision laid out in the GeSI SMARTer2030 report, the Paris Agreement, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through concrete actionable steps at the ICT industry level, business sector level, public policy level, and through public awareness, education, and mobilization. The Coalition launching today intends to bring together the actors whose involvement is needed to make this vision a reality: ICT industry, business, policymakers and civil society.

This report shows that ICT has the potential to enable a 20% reduction of global CO2e emissions by 2030, thus holding emissions at 2015 levels, and to effectively decouple economic growth from emissions growth. The SMARTer2030 also illustrates through a number of case studies what successful applications ICT can have in everyday life. It contains recommendations to decision-makers, businesses and consumers on what actions are needed to make the most of the technology benefits.
