In this episode of XR Star I'm thrilled to talk 'XR & Sustainability' with Jeremy Dalton, Head of XR at PwC and author of 'Reality Check: How Immersive Technologies can Transform your Business'. Here we talk about XR & Sustainability from both business and environmental perspectives.
According to a recent report by Nesta advising the European Commission on the future of the internet and internet connected devices:
- The environmental impact of IOT could contribute as much as 25% of all greenhouse gas emissions by 2030
- A single email creates around 4g of carbon dioxide and we send roughly 300 billion emails per day, creating 1.2 million tonnes of emissions every 24 hours
- Training a single AI model can create as much as 300 tons of CO2 emissions, the same as the entire lifespan of more than 5 petrol cars
I was shocked to find how little was out there when it comes to the relationship between XR and Sustainability, and am definitely keen to look into this further. If this is an area you're involved in, or would like to be included in my future research, please be in touch!
