Reduce Food Wastage; Reduce Environmental Impact of ICTs Working on This Issue
"Approximately one-third of all food produced for human consumption in the world is lost or wasted. If food waste was cut by a quarter, world famine could be solved.
ICTs and responsible consumption and production are linked in two ways: increased dematerialization and virtualization as well as innovative ICT applications enabling sustainable production and consumption. Cloud computing, smart grids, smart metering, and reduced energy consumption of ICTs all have a positive impact on reducing our consumption. However, ICTs themselves require energy consumption. Therefore, effective policies are needed to ensure the negative impacts of ICTs, such as e-waste, are minimized."
