New communications technologies have created a more connected world, fundamentally changing how we live and work. This has profound implications for the environment and how we address challenges such as climate change and low carbon growth as detailed in Telstra’s Environment Strategy.
The explosion of next generation technologies – from smart networks to smart devices, personalised apps to social media – has created a digital world that for most of us was probably unthinkable just 10 years ago.
New technologies offer the opportunity to help address some of today’s most pressing social and environmental challenges, from providing healthcare solutions via teleconference in regional and remote locations to reducing carbon emissions by helping people meet virtually without the need for travel.
Our Environment Strategy is based on maximising these opportunities to deliver improved environmental outcomes while also driving improved efficiency and productivity.
