Climate change is one of the greatest threats humanity has ever faced and the mobile industry has a big part to play in fighting this global crisis. In 2019 the European Commission presented the European Green Deal, committing to become the first climate-neutral region by 2050. The same year, the GSMA Board set an ambitious goal for the industry to be net zero by 2050.

On 31 May, the GSMA will host a roundtable discussion with key EU policy and industry decision-makers for the launch of the second GSMA State of the Industry report on Climate Action: Mobile Net Zero 2022 and an in-depth discussion on how the mobile technology can help deliver the EU Green Deal.

Programme:

8:45-9:00 | Welcome coffee and registration

9:00-9:10 | Introductory remarks on the European Green Deal

9:10-9:20 | Presentation of the Mobile Net Zero report by Steven Moore, Head of Climate Action, GSMA

9:20-9:40 | Mobile Industry Actions

9:40-10:30 | Discussion with participants:

  • How is the mobile industry helping the twin transition?
  • What does the increase in data traffic mean for carbon emissions and energy consumption?
  • What are the challenges and the keys to unlocking renewable energy markets?
  • What impact will the rollout of 5G have for the industry’s emissions and what does is mean for legacy networks?
  • How can the industry start to move towards a circular economy for both network equipment and consumer devices?
