Can the Digital Revolution Be Environmentally Sustainable?

The overall carbon emissions from the digital ecosystem is significant. For example global data centres are estimated to equate to 2% of global emissionsequal to the emissions from global aviation. And with only a quarter of the world population on-line and our thirst for “expecting anything, anytime, anywhere” will place greater pressure on our physical infrastructure and planet.

For example, Andrew Ellis, professor of optical communications at Aston University stated that 8% of UK energy generation is used by the internet and it could consume all UK power by 2035.
