What the experts saying about digitisation and sustainability? RESET asked them to find out.

Author Mark Newton, 08.31.22

At RESET.org we like to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to the important issues of climate change, digitisation and technology. And the best way to do that is to speak with the people at the cutting edge of these topics. In the last few weeks we have conducted a series of in depth interviews with experts covering the role digitisation can play in making our energy, industries and societies more sustainable, transparent and efficient. Check out what they have to say in the interviews below!

Interview: Climate Neutrality in Industry 4.0 – How Do We Get There?

In Germany, industry is responsible for around a quarter of all CO2 emissions. We talked to Grischa Beier (IASS Potsdam) about how industry can reduce its massive CO2 emissions with the help of digitalisation. Read now!

How can we successfully transform our energy system towards climate neutrality? For Severin Beucker, co-founder of the Borderstep Institute, the most important prerequisites are efficient and intelligent grids and consumers. Read now!

Interview: “Digitisation urgently needs to be used for justice and environmental protection – the Bits and Bäume Conference is more important than ever.”

Digital Human Rights Lab: Ensuring Everyone Benefits from Increased Digitisation

The digital world throws up a host of serious problems for human rights. The Digital Human Rights Lab, is creating an online space to support and strengthen human rights for all.

Sustainable Software: How Free Licences Help Conserve Resources

Software has become a key resource in our digital society. Free licences guarantee its long-term availability. Furthermore, the use of free software can also directly and indirectly conserve natural resources.

The Circular Economy Goes Digital

The "circular economy" doesn't just mean recycling. It aims to fundamentally reduce the amount of waste we produce and potentially create a zero-waste society. With the ever increasing digitisation of our daily lives, we now have more opportunities than ever to keep waste levels low.

A Windy Future: Can Wind Power Lead our Clean Energy Revolution?

Bob Dylan famously claimed "the answer is blowin' in the wind". Does the same apply for our growing energy and environmental crisis?

A Bright Future? How the Next Generation of Solar is Overcoming its Many Challenges

Solar power is one of the best-known sources of renewable energy, but it is still only responsible for 3 percent of global electricity. What's keeping it back and how can it further develop?
