Digital technologies can reduce emissions?

Reduce emissions Digital technologies can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 20% by 2050, says a new study

3 sectors The reductions are predicted in the three highest-emitting sectors - energy, mobility and materials

Big 3 These three sectors are the highest emitters - contributing 43, 26, and 24 % respectively in 2020

4 technologies These industries can use four digital technologies to decarbonise their operations and value chains

Which are they? 1) Big data analytics 2) artificial intelligence 3) 5G, blockchain, AR 4) internet of things, automation

Energy sector Such solutions can reduce emissions by 8% in energy sector by enhancing carbon-intensive processes etc

Mobility sector In mobility sector, they can reduce by 5% per cent by helping move from fossil fuel to green molecules

Materials sector In materials sector, they can reduce 7% by improving mining and upstream production and efficiency

Whose study The study was conducted by the World Economic Forum (WEF) in collaboration with multinational Accenture
