Summit meeting of world market leaders: article on sustainability and digitalisation
Düsseldorf, February 02, 2023
High speeds in reforms and innovations have not necessarily been Germany's strength so far. Especially in the digital transformation, our country is demonstrably not moving fast enough. In the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI), Germany is ranked 13th among all European countries. This comprehensive innovation backlog is doubly unfortunate. On the one hand, the economy needs digital infrastructures and skills to position itself resiliently and competitively for tomorrow.
In his article "Digitalisation and Sustainability - Thinking the Transformations Together", which was written in the context of the Summit, Dr Thomas M. Fischer talks about the connection between digitalisation and the progress of sustainability and about how companies can manage to combine the digital and green transformations.
