A new study from researchers at McMaster University published in the Journal of Cleaner Production analyzed the carbon impact of the whole Information and Communication Industry (ICT) from around 2010-2020.

The research found that the carbon footprint from the production of smart phones since 2007 has now tripled.

The bad news is all of us that are using these equipment are contributing to the carbon footprint. All of the ICT contributed about 1% of carbon since 2007 has now tripled, so it is getting worse because we are all using this technology.

Aki Anastasiou, Tech Guru

The phones we are using are getting more and more sophisticated and to produce these phones the carbon footprint increases and the CO2 emissions increase as we produce these high tech phones.
