Nokia Today: Nokia and Greener Acres Canada Partner to Advance Intelligent Urban Infrastructure

+ more

 

In October, Nokia and Greener Acres Canada, Inc. announced a powerful partnership.

E-waste refers to discarded devices, from smartphones to computers, tablets and gaming consoles, that traditionally have found their way into landfills. Now, with this partnership, the two companies will use the nearly 50,000 tons of this waste produced by the city of Ontario each year to sustainably create smarter cities.

Greener Acres Canada will manufacture up to 1,000 smart city green poles per day, which Nokia can then use as part of a next-generation smart pole infrastructure to bring high-speed broadband connectivity and more to the smart cities of the future.

On this episode of Nokia Today, Marianne Strobel, Vice President and Head of North America Customer Marketing and Communications for Nokia, and Greener Acres Canada President Meni Mancini joined Tyler Kern to discuss what’s on the horizon related to this partnership and the future of sustainability in connectivity, overall.

“Sustainability, essentially, is an examination of our existing practices, our daily norms, our behaviors, and how that may affect future generations,” Mancini said. That means looking for ways, such as this green pole initiative, to elevate our current practices while also providing a better, brighter future for those who come after us.
