Green Digital Action

Digital technologies can help solve the climate crisis. Will you?

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), together with over 40 entities spanning governments, businesses, civil society and fellow UN agencies, launched Green Digital Action at COP28 to step up digital climate action.

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) play a crucial role in climate monitoring, climate change adaptation and early warning systems; as well as in mitigation measures like boosting energy efficiency, building green networks and developing circular economies. At the same time, the rapid uptake of data and devices increases the sector’s own energy consumption, emissions, material use and e-waste worldwide.

ITU-convened and partner-led, Green Digital Action aims to enhance collaboration, fast-track industry-wide commitments to addressing climate challenges, and put digital solutions at the forefront of climate action.
