Core messages of the flagship report ‘Our Common Digital Future’

This factsheet summarizes the core messages of the flagship report ‘Our Common Digital Future’. The report makes it clear that sustainability strategies and concepts must be fundamentally further developed in the Digital Age.


Only if digital change and the Transformation towards Sustainability are constructively interlinked can we make progress with climate-change mitigation, Earth-system protection and human development, and with successfully protecting human dignity. Without formative political action, digital change risks further increasing resource and energy consumption and exacerbating damage to both the environment and the climate. Furthermore, uncontrolled digital change threatens to undermine important foundations of our democracies. It is therefore an urgent political priority to create the conditions needed to place digitalization at the service of sustainable development.
