🇺🇳 A UN-backed coalition of 1,000 stakeholders from over 100 nations unveiled an Action Plan to accelerate digitalization’s environmental and social sustainability. The Coalition for Digital Environmental Sustainability (CODES) intends to refocus and prioritize the use of digital technologies in order to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’s goals to solve the triple planetary emergency of climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution, and waste.
🌍 The flagship CODES Action Plan includes building globally inclusive processes to define standards and governance frameworks for digital sustainability, allocating the necessary resources and infrastructure, and identifying opportunities to reduce potential harms or risks from digitalization.
🛰 “Digitalization is changing the way the world works, but the new world of work must be a sustainable one. It is critical that digital innovations and technologies accelerate environmental sustainability. UNEP is committed to supporting CODES and digital sustainability as a core part of our new Digital Transformation programme” said Inger Andersen, Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme and CODES co-champion.
