Since its dawn, the digital revolution has elevated many fields and aspects of our lives and careers. Many businesses now implement digital elements at an unprecedented rate. Today’s world is more open to changes, and another revolution is seeing the light, the sustainability revolution. The world needs more from us to try to salvage a better and healthier life for the future. Both courses meet at many points. How are the digital revolution and the sustainability revolution similar?
The digital revolution has had an immense effect on human life since its dawn in the 1980s. It is widely considered the most impactful event in information release and human communication.
One of the significant additions the digital revolution has introduced was innovative data compressing techniques and solutions. This development became a foundation of the digital process and had a noticeable impact on the world. It was the basis for major digital media compression standards.
Furthermore, the digital revolution helped reduce operating costs for many fields of the economy. This further helped catalyze the process of including digital technologies in our lives. The world has become keener to accept digital solutions into their lives. Most people could not imagine their lives without the digital solutions introduced to us by the digital revolution.
Finally, after this acceptance, the world welcomed various technologies into their daily lives, such as ATMs and a wide array of consumer goods. The world then was exposed to the world of mobile phones, digital cameras, and portable computers. The rest was history, as we all know it. Smartphones are an essential aspect of our daily lives, and the laptop is at the core of every business corporation and household worldwide.
The main impact the sustainability revolution had was raising awareness. The world did take the mistreatment of the environment too far. Our old ways of operating were harmful and destructive despite the clear and core purpose of reducing toxic emissions and adopting greener methods of operations. The sustainability revolution has raised awareness, and the world realizes the gravity of the situation. Those who do not will soon realize the severity of turning a blind eye toward such a critical issue.
Moreover, since its birth in the 1960s, it had a rocky start, and the journey towards a greener tomorrow was not a walk in the park. In the early 2000s, sustainability rose to prominence, and the number of initiatives it houses grows daily. Significant businesses worldwide are adopting a greener operation method. Oil giants like Aramco and many governments worldwide are rushing to contribute to a more sustainable tomorrow.
Lastly, the sustainability revolution is not at the core of every vision of the world leaders of the economy. Giants in the gulf, such as UAE and KSA, have an idea for 2030 to make the nations greener and more sustainable.
Given the fact that both revolutions have shaped the world as we know it now, not only are these two intertwined, but they can be two faces to the same innovative coin. Many companies fail to see the importance of combining both aspects for maximum results. Connecting and building on the similarities of those two worlds is not just an option. It is a necessity.
Additionally, applying a digital solution to implement sustainability changes is ideal. The use of AI, for example, can make the process of a green transformation smoother, and machine learning as well, automating the process, can allow for optimal results. All these solutions not only help with reducing waste and pollution, but they also only proved themselves to be cheaper options. Using the latest data processing and collecting technologies helped achieve a faster growth rate among projects and businesses.
Moreover, digital transformation can allow for more effective and cost-friendly ways to implement sustainability changes. Cost reductions will be the main factor in attracting even more eco-friendly transformation adopters.
Finally, merging both revolutions will pave the way toward sustainable digitalization, improving planning and critical thinking, and promoting long-term solution harvesting and visions. Investing in more green technologies will enhance the bond between both ideologies and result in a greener digital tomorrow.
It is not a question of how the digital and sustainability revolutions are similar. It is a matter of how crucial they are to the future of humankind. The question should not focus on similarities but on when we should stop separating both aspects. The sooner we realize that they are not just two parallel revolutions, and we distinguish that they are a united stand towards a more fantastic future, the brighter tomorrow will be.
