Transport Minister Volker Wessing wants to keep energy consumption for digitalization as low as possible. He asks if food photography is really necessary. But his example is on his feet – and he reacts.

WLIn order to reduce the ecological footprint of digitalization, the G7 countries want to pay more attention to the aspects of sustainability in the future. “We must not repeat the mistake we made during industrialization, which is neglecting sustainability,” Federal Digital Minister Volker Wessing (FDP) said at the conclusion of a meeting of G7 ministers on Wednesday in Düsseldorf. Instead, topics such as recycling devices, protecting raw materials or reducing energy consumption should be considered.

“For example, we tend to film our food,” said the FDP politician. “And if you look at the number of photos of food around the world, you’ll see a tremendous amount of energy expended.” You have to ask yourself if this is really necessary.

This statement came from Wissing In social networks Like a boomerang back. For example, a photo appeared on Wissing’s Instagram showing him with a plate of waffles at the end of 2020 signed “Waffeltag. A spoiled minister in the truest sense of the word”.
