Ericsson report: expansion of 5G will reduce carbon dioxide emissions

According to the experts who compiled the report, 5G - transfers data more efficiently than previous standards

communication, so the amount of carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced.

If you bring 5G to work in four sectors,which generate the largest amount of CO2 - electricity, transport, manufacturing and construction - in the European region, emissions will be reduced by 55-170 million tons.

Experts predict that by 2030, the massive spread of 5G will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the European Union by about 550 million tons per year.

Direct connectivity will enable the transition to a greener, low-carbon future and impact on achieving zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
