Abstract: The increasing level of carbon emissions is one of the most serious concerns in human history facing in today's world. Different countries adopt different policies and approaches to mitigate climate change severity. The current study evaluates the effect of carbon emissions, renewable energy sources, ICT, governance, and GDP in Morocco employing a time-series dataset over the period of 1985–2020. In this paper, we utilized the dynamic ARDL simulations model to explore the association among carbon emissions, renewable energy sources, ICT, governance, and GDP. The ARDL bounds test reveals a long-run connection among the variables. The findings suggest that renewable energy sources (i.e. solar, wind, hydroelectric), ICT, and effective governance are the key indicators to reduce carbon emissions. In addition, we utilized the Granger causality test to probe a causal connection between the study variables. The outcomes have long-run implications for carbon emissions degradation and Morocco's policy towards the fight against climate change.
