Today, digital development and the green economy are the two megatrends that will serve as the new power to foster economic development in China. Therefore, it is necessary to strategically combine these two fields, which are currently treated separately: as a matter of fact, the digital economy is also vital for China to achieve its development goals and deliver on its carbon peak and neutrality pledges. The digital evolution has also strong implications for sustainable development, thus calling for studies on how digital and green technologies can lead the economy and society towards a fair and prosperous future.
In such context, this scoping paper aims to explore the link between digitalization and sustainability; address major challenges regarding the environmental and social impacts of China’s digital transformation towards sustainability; provide recommendations and directions for future research.Task Force: Innovation, Sustainable Production and Consumption Topic: - Year: 2022 Phase: Phase VI (2017-2022) Active
