Exponential growth is not sustainable, and the once long-term problems of climate change are becoming rapidly short-term problems affecting resource depletion, waste generation, general pollution and increasing the prevalence of natural disasters. 

This workshop will examine the green credentials of the optical communications industry, and look at initiatives and directions toward a more sustainable future. Klaus Grobe will outline the big picture and ask how long exponential growth can continue before answering questions with the panel on greening by ICT and how the optical telecommunication industry can make a real difference. Register now for the event beginning September 18.
