Resource description

The telecoms sector isn't regarded as a major polluter, but that isn't stopping firms in that industry from doing what they can to help tackle climate change.

One such telecoms firm, Ericsson, took part in the European Business Summit held recently in Brussels -- a summit devoted this year to 'greening' the economy and reducing carbon emissions. One might wonder why a company that is neither a big polluter, nor present in the energy sector, would feel the need to participate in such a summit. Yet, Ericsson believes that information and communications technology (ICT) can help companies in other sectors reduce their carbon 'footprint'.
