Digital with Purpose: Delivering a SMARTer2030

The UN considers the world to be off track to deliver the vast majority of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. We are beginning to feel the effects of an ecological crisis through climate change, threatening our biosphere and our society.

GeSI’s landmark report confronts these issues head on, and asks what the Digital Industry can and should do to engage with the SDGs and specifically climate action. It provides detailed analysis on the potential for the Digital Industry to drive carbon abatement while supporting the SDGs and economic growth. The report sets out a call for action for the Digital Industry, government, the private sector, and civil society. It details compelling use cases to showcase how to utilize digital technology to support the SDGs.

The launch event will share the Report’s compelling findings; feature presentations from global leaders addressing the climate crisis and advancing the SDGs; and provide use cases from Digital Industry leaders, among others.
