Official event website

ITU will host an online session on 22 May 2023 to explore the two-sided effect of ICTs on the environment. On the negative side, they contribute to environmental degradation through raw material extraction, increased production, and improper disposal of ICT equipment. However, on the positive side, ICTs and digital technologies can monitor biodiversity, gather and manage data, and promote conservation.

This session will examine both aspects of the impact of ICT on biodiversity and explore ways digital technologies can be used to address the goals set out by COP 15. The session will also emphasise the importance of international standards and feature insights from industry representatives and experts.
