Sustainability

How do digital technologies influence sustainability? How can the digital transformation promote sustainable development of the economy? What opportunities but also risks arise from the use of ICT in relation to the environment and sustainability? How can producers and consumers be moved towards more sustainability with data-based decision-making aids? To what extent do these trends influence corporate social responsibility?

These are the questions addressed in this focus area. The interdisciplinary research at the BFH focuses, among other things, on the circular economy and examines how its concepts can be integrated into corporate practice. Researchers at BFH are exploring the potential of digitalisation to meet ecological and social challenges and to drive forward the transformation to a sustainable economy. Digital technologies can support and accelerate this transformation in many areas.
