Our world has undergone a profound digital transformation in the past decade, with Information and Communications Technology (ICT) , pervading nearly every facet of human activity. The ubiquitous influence of ICT has reshaped the way we live, work, and interact, ushering in an era of extraordinary connectivity and convenience. From the way we communicate and conduct business to how we access information and entertain ourselves, the digital revolution has become an inseparable part of our daily lives. The fusion of human society and digital innovation has opened up boundless possibilities, presenting both remarkable opportunities and unique challenges. Even during the turbulent state of the economy, IT spending remains resilient with worldwide IT spending projected to total $4.6 trillion in 2023, an increase of 5.5% from 2022 (Gartner, 2023)1.

This rapid increase in ICT is a
double-edged sword. Amidst the vast benefits brought about by technological advancement, there looms a shadow of negative influences that must be acknowledged and addressed. The most important and at the same time most consequential is the impact that ICT has on climate change. (Freitag et al., 2021)2 examined various peer-reviewed estimates of ICT's GHG emissions and have identified significant variations and ongoing debates concerning the fundamental assumptions underlying them, leading to the possibility that the actual share of ICT emissions could be as high as 2.1% to 3.9%. The authors have identified the underdeveloped policy mechanisms for enforcing sector-wide compliance and have proposed a new regulatory framework.
