Green Digital Economy

József Veress and Laszlo Zsolnai gave a lecture on Green Digital Economy in the Day of Science of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences on November 27, 2020 at the Corvinus University of Budapest.

Veress and Zsolnai argued that business is the most powerful player in the Anthropocene and it is greatly responsible for the degrading state of the biosphere in the last 50-60 years. Business-related activities including material consumption caused most of the negative effects in the biosphere.

The key problem is that the nature, form and scale of business operations are not compatible with the permanence of life on Earth (including human, non-human and future life). The business models of today’s mainstream business do not fit in the reality of the biosphere. Green digitalization has the promise to develop economic and business models for sustainable and regenerative value creation that can serve flourishing of life on Earth.
