Our Action Plan for a Sustainable Planet in the Digital Age

Graphic: UNEP.


50 years after the Stockholm Conference, environmental change remains a major global issue, but another transformation has been ongoing alongside; the digital revolution. The transformational capabilities of digitalisation are a crucial tool to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 and this initiative aims to ensure these are actively directed and harnessed towards a more sustainable future.

The Coalition for Digital Environmental Sustainability (CODES), is an international multi-stakeholder alliance created in March 2021 in response to the UN Secretary General’s Roadmap for Digital Cooperation to steer the use of digital technologies toward accelerating environmentally and socially sustainable development. Over the last year, CODES has grown into a community of over a 1000 individuals and organisations that have worked to co-create an Action Plan for a Sustainable Planet in the Digital Age with the aim to offer a vision and set of priorities and proposed initiatives.

Organizers: German Federal Environment Agency, UNEP, UNDP, International Science Council, Future Earth, Sustainability in the Digital Age, Kenyan Ministry of Environment and Forestry.

Moderator: Shivam Kishore (Digital Sustainability Expert and CODES Contributor)
