Social responsibility concept
The Internet has become one of the important means of ensuring environmental sustainability and will continue to play a key role in the future. When we are talking about how to “green”, we are actually discussing how to reduce our overall impact on the atmospheric environment. Only good intentions are not enough to solve problems. We also need wise strategies and comprehensive management. Whether we focus on office buildings, data centers, homes, or entire cities and regions, effective measurement and management are critical to successful environmental management. We can imagine that at some point in the future, almost all the devices used to manage the human infrastructure will be able to communicate with each other over the network.
In addition, people are changing their way of thinking and behaving because of their emphasis on environmental issues. For example, because the network can help people collaborate more remotely, it reduces the amount of fuel we consume for business travel and commuting. The reduction in travel means a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and an increase in work efficiency.
At present, our customers and partners are demonstrating the tremendous role of network technology in changing people's impact on the environment in a variety of ways. The network can create a sustainable and prosperous development by achieving a benign interaction between people and the environment and between people. By harnessing the power of the network, we can also become better earth stewards.
