"Sustainable and digital: Why we have to rethink" by René
In times of complexity nothing is like it used to be. We are in a
state of constant structural change that raises hopes, but also
causes uncertainty, which can be very uncomfortable for those that
are used to stability. According to Prof. Dr. René Schmidpeter "Digitalization is a great
opportunity to rethink freedom and responsibility!" The new
book CSR and digitalization suggests a new entrepreneurial
perspective on the topic of responsibility. It presents the latest
findings in the field of digitization supported by practical
examples from business, politics and the civil society. Also, for
the first time innovative approaches that combine the current
sustainability debate with the strategic handling of the
digitalization challenges are discussed. To read the full article
