The sixth climate change report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change-a comprehensive evaluation report of scientific research prepared by about 300 scientists from 66 countries-is the loudest and clearest alarm to date on the global warming crisis . The team clearly attributed the increase in the earth’s temperature (which has risen by 1.1 °C since the Industrial Revolution) to human activities. If the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are not reduced immediately, the temperature will rise by 1.5°C to 2°C by the end of this century. The expert group believes that this will cause all mankind to face “a greater risk of passing the’critical point’. The critical point exceeds this critical point. Even if the temperature drops later, certain effects cannot be avoided.”
Therefore, companies and industries must doubly reduce and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions quickly and accurately, but to do this, they must also commit to in-depth operations and organizational transformation. Cellular infrastructure, especially 5G, is one of many digital tools and technical support processes that organizations can use to accelerate decarbonization efforts.
5G and other cellular technologies can enable increasingly interconnected supply chains and networks, improve data sharing, optimize systems, and increase operational efficiency. These capabilities may soon contribute to an exponential acceleration in global efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
Industries such as energy, manufacturing, and transportation may have the greatest impact on decarbonization efforts through the use of 5G, because they are one of the largest greenhouse gas emitting industries and all rely on connected infrastructures connected to each other through communication networks.
The higher performance and higher efficiency of 5G-providing higher gigabit peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, higher reliability and greater network capacity-can help enterprises and public infrastructure providers focus on Business transformation and reduction of harmful emissions. This requires effective digital management and monitoring of distributed operations with flexibility and analytical insight. 5G will help factories, logistics networks, power companies and other institutions operate more efficiently, more consciously, and more purposefully through better insight and stronger network configuration to meet their clear sustainable development goals.
The report entitled “Decarbonization of the Industry through Connection and 5G” believes that broadband cellular connections, mainly through 5G network infrastructure, are a unique, powerful and direct driving force for carbon emission reduction efforts. As increasingly interconnected supply chains, transportation and energy networks share data to improve efficiency and productivity, and thereby optimize systems to reduce carbon emissions, they may accelerate the transformation of decarbonization efforts.
