Replying to David Docquier

Hi Seeram, this is an interesting paper. You say in the abstract "Benefits of 4IR include lower greenhouse gas emissions". Do you have in mind references (i.e. peer-reviewed articles) that demonstrate this statement quantitatively? Thanks.

Hi Seeram, thank you for the reference. However, I think this study is very specific (i.e. the effect of technology intensity in manufacturing on CO2 emissions in developing countries), while your paper above is relatively general and mentions a potential of reducing greenhouse gas emissions using 4IR. Are you aware of the Lean ICT report by the Shift Project (https://theshiftproject.org/en/article/lean-ict-our-new-report/), which does not seem to end up with the same conclusion? In any case, I guess the share of technologies in greenhouse gas emissions is under-studied and would deserve higher attention. What do you think? Thanks, David
