  1. Jean-Luc Beylat, Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs France, President September 2011 ALCATEL-LUCENT Energy Efficient Networks to Enable Sustainable Information-Based Societies

  2. OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY Why it matters? Ben Verwaayen |“The world is having a lot of challenges at this moment. One of them, one of the most important one, is to transform our economies from physical economies to digital economies, to be inclusive for the rural world and to tackle climate change. As an industry we can contribute. As a society we need to take advantage” Digital economies Rural inclusion Climate change

  3. OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY Going Green: next revolution of 21st century? ECONOMIC DRIVER “How do we get Green out of the talking shop into reality? Remember the Internet in the 80's? When so many went into their garages and invented the world we are now used to? Well, Green can be the same motor for innovation. Again the sound of excitement out of the garages will inspire a new wave of economic growth.” CEO Alcatel-Lucent At the World Economic Forum
