Attitudes to collaborative technologies

Attitudes to collaborative technologies

By Molly Webb, Head of Smart Technologies, The Climate Group.

Telstra supported a great report by Climate Risk last year on the opportunities for telecoms companies to reduce emissions. They found that overall, ICT could reduce Australia's emissions by 5%.

Recently, I've become aware of Turlough Guerin's blog and found this informal survey on why people don't use collaborative technologies as much as we might expect. See the results here.

Just because we have the technologies, doesn't mean we'll use them. More work to be done on organisational and institutional change, skills development and policy engagment.
