A world where digital technology is universally adopted for a sustainable and equitable future.
To empower individuals and communities through digital sustainability as the bridge to the digital divide and promote co-existence within planetary boundaries.
Krishna Ramachandra, former Chairman and Managing Director of Duane Morris & Selvam with 7 years of experience in blockchain tech, established Digital Insights Group in early 2022. With extensive project involvement in various advisory positions, working on more than 350 deals, he left his position as Managing Director to launch Digital Insights. Believing in the transformative potential of blockchain for all aspects of society, Krishna set up the sustainability arm of Digital Insights, recognising it as the key to unlocking the full impact of the technology.
An important element of sustainability is education and the Digital Insights Academy was set up to serve this purpose. We develop curriculum for blockchain technology, Web3, AI and other leading technologies, offered in different formats and levels of difficulty.
We work with government agencies on solutions to positively impact the next generation and other less privileged members of society, who are most likely to be left behind in the digital revolution. Digital Insights Academy is set-up as a not for profit entity.
The intelligence division of Digital Insights was established to create and implement tech solutions for the company’s various branches. It spearheads the creation of the Digital Sustainability Platform to foster collaboration between all parties involved, and plans to offer white-labelled technology in the future and retain all patents for technology developed.
Digital Sustainability Council (DSC) is set up as a foundation to champion sustainability efforts in the digital economy. Independently set up and governed, the purpose of the foundation is to bring together resources, both financial and human, to drive change and make a meaningful impact in promoting sustainability.
DSC provides a platform for collaboration, innovation, and collective action, working with various stakeholders including government, civil society, and the private sector to tackle complex challenges. By investing in research, development, and implementation of sustainable solutions, the council aims to create a legacy for future generations and contribute to a more sustainable future for all.

“I would like to take a moment to reflect on the bold predictions that were made by experts many years back, regarding the state of the world beyond 2020. They envisioned developments in technology that were nothing short of science fiction, but also predicted widening gaps in social and economic equity, depletion of resources, and potentially catastrophic climate change.
While these predictions were accurate to some extent, nobody could have predicted the rapid adoption of digital transformation that we have seen in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. This has forever transformed the business and socioeconomic landscape. Now, more than ever, it is crucial that we build digital capabilities as the foundation of every business strategy and prioritise sustainability in every aspect of business operations.
Sustainability has traditionally been viewed through the lens of the triple bottom line, which include environmental, social, and economic factors. But in the digital economy, sustainability goes beyond these dimensions and blurs the lines between them. To ensure equitable access to the opportunities and benefits of the digital economy for all individuals and communities, it is essential that we bridge the digital divide.
At DIS, we understand the importance of taking a broad perspective on sustainability and reducing barriers to stakeholder participation. We believe that digital innovation can be a powerful tool in promoting sustainable living within planetary boundaries. That is why we are committed to leveraging cutting-edge digital technologies to create solutions that not only address critical challenges but also pave the way for an inclusive and regenerative society and economy.”
