RESET – Digital for Good

RESET makes solutions-driven, independent journalism, reporting on a sustainable digital future. We share stories and insights about projects and businesses that are using innovative ideas for positive impact. As an impact organisation, RESET supports ecopreneurs with consultation and expertise.

The Sustainability Platform RESET

The current era is shaped by two key developments: increasing digitalisation and the rapid advance of climate change. How can we use digital tools for sustainable development? And how can we ensure that digitalisation develops sustainably? At RESET we take a nuanced look at the latest news from the field of sustainability and digitalisation, report on new solutions and promote positive impact. We’re dedicated to the principles of constructive journalism, also known as solutions journalism. We don’t just ask what the problems are, we also ask “What’s working?” and “How can we have more of it?”

Impact Finance: RESET supports ecopreneurs

Ecopreneurs and social entrepreneurs are shaking up the economy by combining business principles with a sense of responsibility for society and the environment. We want to take this development further and transform our society step by step. That’s why RESET supports green and social entrepreneurs by writing about their work, advising them on key issues and actively helping them to raise growth capital.

Sustainability since 2007

The not-for-profit organisation RESET was set up in 2007 by German entrepreneurs Uta Mühleis and Bodo Kräter.

Uta studied environmental and development policy and has been working with digital media since the mid-90s. Bodo has been committed to new digital business models for decades and has already helped more than 100 start-ups to successful financing.

The RESET editorial office is located in Berlin. This means that our content tends to have a European perspective. But climate change and social justice are issues that affect us all – and smart solutions are being worked on around the globe. With, we want to provide a platform for all of these. RESET international team of authors brings together a wide range of skills, united by the urgent need to demonstrate that there are stories of a better world that need telling.

RESET’s work has been recognised multiple times, including by UNESCO, the GreenTecAwards and the initiative “Germany – Land of Ideas”.

Keynote, Workshop or Expert Article – RESET Shares Its Knowledge

With RESET we’ve been keeping our eye on global developments in the area of “digital for good“ for more than ten years. During this time we’ve discovered hundreds of clever solutions, detected new movements and reported on emerging trends. We’re happy to share our knowledge about digital green and social innovations.

We sometimes receive funding for individual environmental projects. Because does not use advertising or content marketing, we also rely on donations from our community.
