ITU adopted Connect 2030 Agenda for global telecommunication/information and communication technology, including broadband, for sustainable development to reaffirm a shared global vision for the development of the telecommunication/ICT sector, envisaging "an information society, empowered by the interconnected world, where telecommunications/ICTs enable and accelerate social, economic and environmentally sustainable growth and development for everyone".
Targets under Goal 3: Sustainability, directly relate to the management of challenges resulting from telecommunications and ICT development:
- Target 3.2: By 2023, increase the global e-waste recycling rate to 30%
- Target 3.3: By 2023, raise the percentage of countries with an e-waste legislation to 50%.
- Target 3.4: By 2023, net telecommunication/ICT-enabled Greenhouse Gas abatement should have increased by 30% compared to the 2015 baseline
