Abstract

The study contributes to enriching the current literature on the connection between digital transformation and sustainability at the industry level, by developing a Systemic Literature Review (SLR). The database used to identify the documents was Web of Science; the selected time period was from 2010 to 2022 in order to perform an as comprehensive as possible analysis of the published articles on this topic. Three research categories were selected: Business, Management, and Economics. The results underlined that digital transformation can significantly support the achievement of sustainable goals, representing a key opportunity for both institutions and businesses to change their management models to meet the community's increasingly pressing expectations in terms of environmental protection and social welfare. In this sense, the results show the need for more comprehensive studies on the relationship between digital transformation and the pillars of sustainability, especially the social one. The study has some limitations deriving from only using articles, a single database, and a specific query to identify relevant documents.
