5G promises to enhance telcos’ connectivity capabilities and bolster growth, but it also presents a challenge for them to keep operating costs down, meet their sustainability goals and mitigate new risks for customers, investors and governments.

How should telcos approach their design, procurement, deployment and operation of 5G to minimise and de-carbonise their energy use, while also driving their customers’ transition to lower emissions through 5G-enabled services?

In this webinar, we will draw on insights from interviews with leading telcos, and a survey of 500+ enterprises from a range of verticals to address the following questions:

* How does 5G pose a challenge to energy efficiency, and why should telcos make this a business priority?

* How can telcos use 5G to meet increasingly ambitious sustainability commitments?

* What steps are already being taken by market leaders?

* How could this translate into an opportunity to support enterprise customers in their journeys to lower emissions?
