Governments and companies around the world are urging us to think about the environment - and to act Green. Switch off the power. Use energy-saving low-voltage lights. Recycle waste. Buy local products. Reject over-packaging. Get a smaller, fuel-efficient car, Fly less and let the train take the strain....

But what about ICT? What impact do the telecoms and IT industries have on the environment and what role can ICT play in helping alleviate the problems?

In Episode 1 of Green Planet, TelecomTV provides an overview of the different elements of Sustainable ICT that will be explored in detail throughout the rest of the series. Featuring leading scientists, politicians and heads of industry from across the globe, Green Planet is a timely and fascinating examination of issues and solutions that will change the world.

Hope you have enjoyed watching our first episode of Green Planet. This episode provides an introduction to the variety of topics we will be covering over the series.

We really want to hear feedback from you... what should we be covering, where should we be filming, who are the champions of Sustainable ICT? Please add your comments and feedback here.

Episode 2, which will be released on Thursday 7th May, will look in detail at the affects of data centers on the environment and the many ways they can be made more efficient, and ultimately more green.
