It is said that to limit global temperature rise to 2°C, emissions need to be capped at approximately 44 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent by 2020. However emission are likely to hit 53 gigatonnes by 2020. The ITU says that ICT and broadband-enabled applications could limit the total to just 45.2 gigatonnes by 2020.
