Details

Governments everywhere are urging not only industry but also consumers to go easy on the planet’s precious raw materials. And Europe is banking on innovation as a driving force in achieving its so-called twin (green and digital) transition to a zero carbon, zero waste economy that leaves no person or place behind.

The European Commission states that “Europe must leverage the potential of digital transformation, which is a key enabler for reaching the Green Deal objectives.”

This idea is reinforced in the New Industrial Strategy for Europe, where it is underlined that the twin ecological and digital transitions will affect every part of our economy, society, and industry.

New green technologies are already here to help tackle the biggest challenge of our time: climate change. The European Commission has long promoted digital transformation to enhance economic competitiveness, while also recognising that digitisation can contribute to sustainability goals and enable the changes needed for a just green transition. The Commission’s twin green and digital goals are seen to complement each other well.

The Green Deal wants to decouple economic growth from resource use by 2050, and transform ‘linear’ take-make-discard industrial value chains into virtuous models that design waste and pollution out of the process, keeping products and materials in use for longer and helping to regenerate ecosystems.

How, exactly, are digital solutions enabling sustainability gains? Are they contributing to the EU’s green growth now? And what more can be done to stimulate green growth through digitisation? How can IoT and Edge computing contribute achieving to Green Deal and digital twin transition objectives.
