Keywords:Technological innovation, Telecommunication infrastructure, CO2 emissions, Energy use, Environmental sustainability, GMM
The linkage between ICT and environmental degradation has an important role in today’s environmental debates. This research empirically scrutinizes the ecological dimension of ICT at the global level by using different key indicators. This paper conducts an analysis to provide comprehensive documentation regarding ICT impact on environmental degradation from 1984 to 2019. The empirical findings are based on Ordinary Least Square (OLS), Pooled OLS, Two-Stage Least Squares (2SLS), and Generalized Method of Moment (GMM) techniques. By applying cross-sectional and panel data, this research found evidence that ICT is an effective tool to alleviate environmental degradation. The study points out many policy implications drawn from its findings.
