Thinking sustainability and digitalization together

The latest podcast episode is all about sustainability and digitalization.

Our guest Mario Angst from the University of Zurich emphasizes that sustainability is more than just climate protection and that digitalization itself can be made sustainable. We learn how strategies such as sufficiency, efficiency and consistency can help. We also need to question the “Silicon Valley mindset”, which believes that technology can solve all problems. Sustainability and digitalization must be thought of together in order to bring about positive change. An exciting exchange about the future of digitalization and its role in a sustainable world.
