Climate Change is a clear acute crisis threatening our planet and impacting human lives and health in various ways. It endangers good health and has the potential to undermine decades of progress.
Between 2030 and 2050, climate change is expected to cause approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year. We will continue to put a strain on the planet’s resources to produce enough electricity, food, and water as our population grows to 9.8 billion by 2050.
IoT-LPWAN will play a key role in reducing humanity’s environmental impact and fight climate change. It has a significant effect on reducing the carbon footprint of processes by conserving natural resources and reducing production waste.
Effect of IoT-Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technology on Climate Change
Greenhouse gases greatly impact climate change; the world’s temperature rises, causing damage. IoT-LPWAN can fight climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, tracking energy consumption, generating renewable energy on-site, and eliminating waste sustainably.
Smart Traffic Management & Climate Change
Traffic congestion is a major issue that negatively impacts the climate as vehicles are the primary source of greenhouse gas emissions. A smart traffic management solution is an efficient way to reduce traffic congestion and pollution while also improving the lives of citizens.
Smart Agriculture & Climate Change
Agriculture impacts climate change due to the inefficient use of fertilizers and pesticides, polluting the environment, and wasting a large amount of water. Smart Agriculture technology will combat climate change by minimizing the usage of water, fertilizers, and pesticides. It monitors soil minerals, temperature, and moisture, improving and increasing yields while reducing resources and land use.
Asset Tracking & Climate Change
Through IoT-LPWAN technology, logistics companies can shorten delivery routes through intelligent route planning, and tracking can shorten delivery times which ultimately has a positive effect on the climate by reducing total direct and indirect energy consumption, efficient use of materials.
IoT-LPWAN technology will play a crucial role in fighting climate change in the coming years; we observe a mindset shift in how businesses and cities approach sustainable solutions. As a result, we anticipate a much stronger link between digitalization and sustainability efforts in the coming years.
