Utilizing e-Commerce and M-Commerce Applications to Address the Effect of Global Warming
Source: University of South Africa
The impact of global warming is particularly significant to African countries with growing economies. The process of reducing carbon emissions has the potential to negatively impact emerging economies. However the use of web technologies and mobile technologies may be a way of reducing carbon emission without adversely affecting the economy. Unlike developed countries, developing nations are less reliant on fossilized fuels and thus have the ability to change and adapt to this growing concern. In this preliminary research paper, the relationship between the use of ecommerce and m-commerce technologies relative to the reduction of carbon emissions is investigated within the South African context.
