Under the general theme of ICT for sustainability, the report explores the central role of ICT in fostering economic, environmental, and social sustainability both as an industry in itself and in the overall economy and society. The report has established itself as one of the most comprehensive assessments of ICT readiness, covering 133 economies from the developing and developed world, representing over 98 percent of global GDP. A number of essays and case studies on sustainability and best practices in networked readiness are featured in the report, together with a comprehensive data section -  including detailed profiles for each economy covered and data tables with global rankings for the NRI’s 68 indicators.
