Conclusion: Don’t be the last organisation to assess the trajectory of email and other electronic communication strategies and solutions. As awareness of CO2 emission sources grows, communities and governments will be considering both large and small changes to achieve a net zero emissions target by 2050. New challenges will be presented to measure large industry specific Greenhouse CO2 emissions and smaller seemingly innocuous sources such as email.

Moving forward, upcoming generations will challenge the use of email as the primary communications channel and opt for more flexible, integrated communications channels. The tools will focus on aiding collaborations within and outside the organisation, and streamlining email overload. Much of this has already started, with vendor integration seeing emails as one element of a multi-functional approach to electronic communications. Digital marketing, customer relationship management, singularity workflows, workforce management, and project management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) developers are all embedding emails, chat, social media, Agile Kanban boards, and emerging communication methods within their products to engage future generations in the way they experienced prior to joining the workforce.
