Mobile Device Production Producing Massive Amounts of Greenhouse Gases

Mobile Device Production Producing Massive Amounts of Greenhouse Gases 300x168 Mobile Device Production Producing Massive Amounts of Greenhouse GasesA fascinating new report from Juniper Research reveals that mobile device production will generate over 115 million tons of greenhouse gases (GHGs) per year by 2019.

“This level -  equivalent to 60 years of flights from London Heathrow airport, or the annual emissions from 22.6 million cars – represents an increase of over 30% on the 2014 figure,” the report summary shared with MMW reads.

“Green Mobile: The Complete Guide to Vendor Strategies & Future Prospects 2014-2019″ finds that vendors have made progress on reducing their own carbon emissions but have not prioritized environmental sustainability to the extent required to drive their suppliers into action.

As vendors are directly responsible for less than 5% of overall production emissions, the report highlights the need to “drive change across the whole value chain in order to achieve a significant net reduction across the whole industry.”
