Understanding the environmental impact of communication systems

source: Ofcom
"The purpose of this study was to improve our understanding of the type and degree of environmental impact that communication systems can have. The work aimed to provide a reference point in terms of relevant environmental background material, data examples, analyses, and key source references. A second aim was to help understanding of the scale and type of impacts communication systems can have. The study was not intended to be a definitive impact assessment of UK communication systems, but was intended to inform on a range of relevant issues and provide insight into environmental impacts for communication systems relevant to the UK."
