The topic of sustainability has never been higher on the societal agenda than it is today. On one hand, the United Nation’s (UN) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all of its 195 member states in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for long-term peace and prosperity around the world. On the other hand, extreme flooding, droughts, and hurricanes continue to showcase the devastating effects of global warming and the subsequent climate change.
Furthermore, with the Paris Agreement (signed in April 2016), a total of 175 states and governments across the globe committed to limiting the global temperature increase to below 2° Celsius (C) (as compared to pre-industrial levels) and pursuing efforts to limit temperature increases even further to 1.5°C.
To support sustainability efforts, the pace of 5G rollouts is important, as the climate crisis cannot be postponed. In the consumer space, mobile operators are deploying 5G and migrating subscribers to the new technology, but there may still be years until 5G replaces 4G and previous generations.
