Action Plan for a Sustainable Planet in the Digital Age

The Coalition for Digital Environmental Sustainability (CODES) has published this Action Plan on the 50th anniversary of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment and will contribute the implementation of this vision in the years ahead. 

There is an urgent need to reverse negative trends and to utilize the potential of digital transformation as a vital tool in developing globally sustainable economic and social behaviors.

We need to move the focus away from the pursuit of short-term, unsustainable gains towards the achievement of long-term values-driven sustainable outcomes. Three systemic shifts are needed to harness digital transformation as a positive and exponential force for progressing environmentally and socially sustainable development.
