Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications is urging players within the space to collaborate with government to promote clean energy transitions.
The Chamber maintains that an accelerated energy transition across the country will ensure the telecommunication industry remains sustainable and resilient.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications , Dr. Ing. Kenneth Ashigbey who made these comments at the 21st knowledge forum under theme: Empowering Consumers through Clean Energy Transitions said the Chamber is committed to reducing the impact that telecommunications operations have on climate change and the environment.
“We recognize that promoting clean energy transitions is a multi-stakeholder effort that requires collaboration between the industry, policymakers, and regulators. Therefore, we hope that this forum will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to share their experiences, insights, and concerns, and chart a way forward that promotes clean energy transitions while enabling the growth of our industry,” he said.
“All of us are consumers and we are not passive bystanders, we have to be included in the clean energy transitions. We have our roles to play. We all wield power as marketplace actors. We are all consumers of telecommunication services that are powered by energy sources, and as such, we have the potential to take action that accelerates or decelerate clean energy transitions,” he added.
