(IS-2013-63) Wireless and the environment
This report from BSR examines possible environmental advantages to wireless technology. The primary area where wireless enables a benefit for the environment is in providing information, where previously, geographic or other barriers made this impossible. While transportation and utilities are obvious beneficiaries in areas such as route optimization and monitoring and controlling energy usage, other industries as well as the government are finding that wireless technology can play an important role in reducing environmental impact - while creating efficiencies and improving the bottom line.
