Digital technology is becoming an indispensable and crucial component of our lives, society, and the physical environment. A framework for the role of computing in dealing with sustainability of the planet will be presented. The framework has a number of goals: an optimal digital infrastructure, sensing and optimizing the physical world with a global model, reliably predicting and reacting to our environment, and digital alternatives to physical activities. Practical industrial examples will be given as well as longer-term research goals.
