Questionnaire of the Sub-group on Role of RSP to Help Combat Climate Change

The urgent need to deal with the effects of climate change calls for concrete actions. In this regard, RSPG included in its work program for 2020 and beyond a work item to identify the role of spectrum policy to identify measures to combat global climate change and to assess how it could contribute to broader environmental goals involving various kinds of radio spectrum usage as a crucial component.

The RSPG sub-group on Climate Change is working towards a report addressing the relationship between spectrum policy and climate change, with a focus on topics such as:

  • implementation and impact of Green regulatory measures (Green Deal[1], ECO Design Directive[2]) into spectrum policy,
  • initiatives to reduce the carbon footprint of wireless communication networks and equipment in the European Union,
  • how wireless technologies can help other sectors become more climate-friendly,
  • the use of spectrum for monitoring climate change and collecting data for weather forecasting, and
  • measures to introduce climate change mitigation in spectrum policy and management.

For further information, you can download the questionnaire here.

The responses are now available for download here.
