About This Topic

Dear Colleagues,

A basic framework for the global response to climate change has been established, based on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Paris Agreement. A global consensus has been reached to achieve a carbon peak and carbon neutral development, which can promote a comprehensive green transformation of both economies and society. According to the International Energy Agency, the manufacturing sector is one of the major contributors to global carbon emissions, accounting for about 17%. In recent years, digital technology especially has played a crucial role response to the dual challenges of green upgrading and digital transformation. Green innovation is a process of green technology, product, and process innovation, as well as corresponding organization, management, and system innovation. Digital technology is essential for green innovation, and when it is necessary to evaluate and model human knowledge in the process of digital green innovation, fuzzy set theory is usually the most suitable.

This Special Issue aims to collate original research articles that report on recent advancements fuzzy system models and their application in digital green innovation in green transformation and digital transformation. Review articles are also welcomed.
