The Net-Zero Challenge

Jeanette Irekvist, President of Ericsson Canada, highlighted the company's dedication to climate action, saying, "As part of our commitment to advancing our climate action initiatives here in Canada and around the globe, we are thrilled to join the Government of Canada's Net-Zero Challenge."

"As a technology leader with a strong foundation in research and development, we understand our climate impacts and the importance of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees C. Our climate commitment already extends throughout our value chain, committing to become net-zero by 2040, and we look forward to joining the momentum of this program."

While the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector is responsible for only 1.4 per cent of the global carbon footprint, it has the potential to enable a 15-20 per cent reduction of emissions across industries by 2030 through connectivity solutions, Ericsson Canada explained.

Driving Innovation for Climate Action

"We are driving our global innovation in network sustainability through our investments in R&D here in Canada, and a research partnership with Environment and Climate Change Canada and ETS, Concordia, and Polytechnique that is already exploring how AI can help the telecom sector and Canada and the world's climate action goals," Ericsson Canada said.
