Summary

At first glance, digitization appears to be incompatible with the principles of sustainability. In particular, the speed of data, but also the disruption of entire business models and industries, require strategies that take effect promptly and flexibly. Digital business models largely include the option of conserving resources. In this respect, digitization can, but does not have to, make a contribution to sustainability. The article deals with how sustainability and digitization can be intelligently combined for long-term success.
