On 2 April 2012 the Broadband Commission launched a new report entitled “The Broadband Bridge: Linking ICTs with climate action for a low-carbon economy”, which identifies how investments in broadband can be leveraged from an environmental perspective to address climate change, and illustrates the potential of broadband as a solution to the problem.
The report has been produced using interviews and supporting material from more than 20 leaders and experts in the field including Luis Neves, GeSI Chairman. It concludes with 10 recommendations for global leaders and policy makers to turn vision into action for a low carbon, sustainable future.
The report marks the first step in sending a message from the Broadband Commission to the participants at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), taking place in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012.
