Nokia at COP28

There is no green without digital

 

 

 

Background

From the end of November through to mid-December, world leaders convened in Dubai for the UN's annual climate change conference, also known as the ‘Conference of the Parties’ or ‘COP 28’ to seek ways to accelerate climate action. The aim of the COP process is for governments to agree on concrete steps to address climate change.  

This came at a critical time. 2023 has seen extreme temperatures and extreme weather events, while the UN report for the first so-called global stocktake - an assessment of climate commitments so far - suggests the world is not on track to limit global warming sufficiently.

We believe that the business community has a key role to play in supporting and enabling climate action. The focus in Dubai was on a global stocktake – an assessment of whether the world is on track to meet key global climate goals. Other critical topics included finance, health, natural resources and infrastructure.

We believe there is no green without digital

At Nokia, we believe technologies from 5G to artificial intelligence (AI) can accelerate the green transition and help accelerate the journey to net zero across industries.  

In the energy sector, it will support both renewables generation and grid transformation, allowing the sector to move faster with the green transition. Technologies such as digital twins and AI can also help hard-to-abate sectors find ways to accelerate sustainability efforts. Digital can help scale more sustainable business practices across all industries.

Digital solutions can also enable climate monitoring and early warning systems, supporting efforts to adapt to the effects of global warming that are already being felt.

Shifting to renewables can be hard
