Digital Policy Brief – German Government

  • News

In January, the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport published a landmark policy brief that maps out the nation’s digital strategy moving forward. This release highlights the growing emphasis policymakers place on steering digital innovations adequately, especially in light of recent groundbreaking advancements in AI technology. However, while the document addresses the direct environmental impacts of digital technologies, it falls short in addressing the broader indirect effects stemming from the widespread adoption and utilisation of digital technologies in our daily lives. Overlooking these ramifications could have profound implications for energy consumption and carbon emissions. Fortunately, research conducted by the iDODDLE Oxford team fills this gap, delving into the intricate relationship between digitalised daily life and their impact on climate change.
