Digital transformation

Towards an empowered digital transformation

In solving societal and economic challenges the role of digital innovation is indispensable. For instance, in accelerating energy transition, maintaining security, and keeping healthcare affordable.

The digital world also enables us to transform cities and communities with sustainability at the forefront as well as bringing positive change across all industries on a global scale (SDG 11). In the Netherlands, digital technology enables us to bring supply and demand  together more quickly in order to implement successful innovations in short cyclical terms.

In digital transformation, peace, justice, and strong institutions (SDG 16) need our commitment more than ever. To achieve this, fair access to justice and building effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels is essential. The Netherlands is able to capitalise on the economic and social opportunities of digitalisation, and ensures that it’s done in a safe and innovative manner.

By working together, we can foster continuous, inclusive and sustainable economic growth as well as decent jobs for everyone (SDG 8). By 2030, security organisations in the Netherlands will collect new and better data, so that they are always one step ahead.

Together with our international partners, the Netherlands wants to create a coalition of the willing to drive our industries into a new era. One of zero emissions, zero waste, zero kilometres. We will do this through the development of renewable and sustainable systems, through resource recovery and through inclusivity.

We aim to ‘flip the script’– instead of being part of the problem, let’s find solutions to address global challenges facing us today. None of us have the whole answer, but together, we can change the direction the planet is heading. To shift from a linear to a circular economy.

Each of us has a part to play to create innovative solution for the wellbeing and prosperity of people and our planet.

Let's empower our digital future!
