IoT is good for the planet, but trade-offs are necessary
The use of IoT hardware and software applications will have a very positive impact on global sustainability but the trend masks significant variations between use cases, and over the lifecycle of the device. This was one conclusion from a recent report from Transforma Insights, ‘On balance, IoT is very beneficial from a sustainability perspective’. The report considers the overall sustainability implications of the deployment of IoT, including analysis of the impact on electricity consumption, (hydrocarbon) fuel consumption, water consumption, and CO2 emissions.
