A Call for a Digital Green Deal

This article, written by Tilman Santarius and a team of interdisciplinary experts from various European Universities,  calls for a Digital Green Deal that includes strong, cross-sectoral green digitalization policies on all levels of governance. We argue that such current digital policy initiatives, e.g. at EU level, should include measures that service environmental goals, and environmental policy initiatives must address risks and advance opportunities of digital technologies. The call for a Digital Green Deal is based on a broad and up-to-date review of the vast interdisciplinary literature on the relation between digitalization and environmental sustainability.
