We bring together private investors in gigabit communications networks

We stimulate investment and innovation in a digital, green and resilient Europe

We support policies which allow for sustainable investment in gigabit infrastructure

OUR VISION

We support a strong and harmonised European Digital Single Market, with a clear focus on enabling regulatory and market conditions that allow for sustainable investment and innovation in gigabit infrastructure and IoT.

GIGAEurope aims to highlight the importance of EU policies, supporting sustainable investment and competition. We believe that European policies should be based on long-term objectives, with regulatory intervention where the market fails to provide efficient outcomes.

Working with vertical players and policy makers, we aim to reduce market fragmentation and establish a level playing field across the whole digital ecosystem.

Our Priorities

TRUST IN CONNECTIVITY

Trust is key for Europeans to participate in a fast-changing digital world and embrace new technologies. Gigabit network providers need to convey this trust by providing secure & reliable access to the digital world.

INCLUSIVENESS

No one can be left behind. All Europeans need to have access to next generation digital services enabled by gigabit networks. That is why we need investments in upgrading and rolling-out gigabit networks.

DIGITAL AND GREEN TRANSFORMATION

Gigabit connectivity accelerates the digital and green transformation of economies and society. Gigabit networks enable new advanced digital services in fields like e-health, e-mobility and smart cities.

INNOVATION

Gigabit access is key to the digital & green transition and to make Europe carbon neutral by 2050. Innovations with an energy efficiency focus make gigabit networks consume less energy.

Green ICT: How can the digital sector accelerate the green transition?

14 June 2022

There is no dearth of fora and mechanisms to demonstrate the public interest and global political will to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, there is broad agreement that the ICT sector and digitalisation can have a favourable impact on international and regional climate targets, by enabling green and digital transitions.

Many connectivity providers have announced voluntary commitments to meeting ambitious goals by joining the European Green and Digital Coalition.

During the next EURACTIV – GIGAEurope Digital Debate Series event, we discussed:

– How does the current energy crisis, amplified by the current geopolitical situation, impact the Green Deal objectives and their implementation?

– What are the indices, metrics, or KPIs that industry and stakeholders can agree to?

– What should be taken into account when discussing the twin transition and the environmental footprint of the ICT sector?
