Energy infrastructure: ICT will play a key role in the transition to a low-carbon economy

• ICT could deliver up to a 15% reduction of business-as-usual emissions in 2020

•This savings in CO2 emissions is more than five times the size of the sector’s own


Building & transforming livelihoods and lifestyles Products and services for aging populations By 2020 people aged 65 and above will account for about onefifth of the total global population

From The Economist, 20 November 2010


Conclusions 1. Global challenges will become key strategic drivers for business and innovation 2. Opportunities abound for those who turn sustainability into strategy 3. The race towards more inclusive, low carbon and resource efficient economies is on
