Connecting the world to tackle climate change…

The mobile industry is at the forefront of the digital revolution, delivering impact through global initiatives. Our leaders are driving carbon reduction both within the industry and enabling other industries to follow suit, through smart connected technologies.

We are proud to have been recognised by the UN’s ‘Race To Zero’ campaign as one of the sectors first to ‘Breakthrough’ on net zero by 2050 targets. And two thirds of mobile network operators by revenue are committed to rapidly reduce their whole value chain emissions by 2030.

There is much to transform. Countries must go further, urgently, and no country should be left behind without the opportunity to deliver climate action that creates jobs, cuts emissions and protects from climate change impacts.

This requires strong and effective global partnerships, and we’re ready to engage governments, investors and innovators. Discover what action is already being taken and what we need to reach our goals…

GSMA stand at COP26

At COP26 in Glasgow, in the Green Zone, the GSMA in partnership with Virgin Media O2 is showcasing a 5G-powered, electric, Connected Autonomous Vehicle (CAV). It highlights how 5G’s dramatic connectivity speeds will help make the future of transport more sustainable. There is a driving simulator for visitors to experience what it’s like to travel in a fully autonomous vehicle. An air pollution sensors providing real-time data from various locations across the UK will also be featured. Come and visit us to find out more.

The mobile industry is at the forefront of the digital revolution and continues to deliver impact through initiatives.

Our leaders are driving change within the industry and empowering other industries to follow suit, and we are proud to have been recognised by Race To Zero as one of the sectors first to ‘Breakthrough’ with 36 per cent of the industry, by total revenue, committed to net zero.

It is plain there is much more to be done. Countries must go further, urgently, and no country should be left behind without the opportunity to deliver climate action that creates jobs, cuts emissions and protects from climate change impacts. This requires strong and effective global partnerships between the mobile industry, governments, investors and innovators.
