There’s still a lot of uncertainty about what regulators can do about the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions. The European Union’s Radio Spectrum Policy Group recently published a questionnaire that asked if Europe’s networks’ energy consumption was being measured and how.

The episode covers the main efforts to date and points out why sustainability is such a difficult discussion for spectrum policy.
