New Report: Digital Reset. Redirecting Technologies for the Deep Sustainability Transformation.
New report provides a comprehensive analysis of opportunities, risks and governance options regarding digitalisation and sustainability.
The soon to be released report ”Digital Reset” shows that digitalisation, in its current and mainstream form, is rather aggravating than solving many of the pressing social and environmental crises at hand. It proposes a deep sustainability transformation that fundamentally reorganizes the economy and all its sectors – agriculture, mobility, energy, buildings, industry, and consumption.
The report shows how digital technologies can support the quest for such a deep sustainability transformation. It provides a blueprint for the European Union on how to reconceptualize digitalisation, so that it first and foremost contributes to achieving carbon neutrality, resource autonomy and economic resilience while supporting equity and fully respecting citizen’s rights and privacy.
The report is the outcome of a two-year international science-policy dialogue, “Digitalization for Sustainability” (D4S), and presents the most up-to-date comprehensive analysis of opportunities, risks and governance options regarding digitalization and sustainability.
