Making #Sustainability Smarter

Sustainable development is on top of political agendas around the world. In the EU, it is among the new European Commission’s top priorities, including President von der Leyen’s “Agenda for Europe”. How high are the stakes for global companies? Are there political majorities for pushing ambitious plans? Is technology a booster or an obstacle to achieving the SDGs?

Join the Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) and ETNO, Europe’s leading telecoms association, for a conversation on the political, industrial, market and consumer angle on sustainability and digital goals. The event will be the official European launch of the report
“Digital with Purpose – delivering a SMARTer 2030”, prepared by Deloitte for GeSI.

The road to Very High Capacity Connectivity networks

Very High Capacity Connectivity networks (VHCCN) are becoming a reality in the EU but with stark differences across the Union’s Member States for diverse reasons. Moreover, we believe that bringing Very High Capacity Connectivity is a shared challenge.

Lise Fuhr attended the debate organised by the European Internet Forum and underlined that ETNO’s priorities for VHCCN will be based on 3 pillars: ubiquitous, secure and sustainable.
