Subject. This article considers digital transformation as one of the prime objectives for the development of the Russian economy.
Objectives. The article aims to assess the impact of digital transformation on the solution of important environmental problems of the Krasnoyarsk Krai.
Methods. For the study, I used logical, comparative, and statistical analyses.
Results. The article assesses the completeness of the reflection of issues related to digitalization in the industry programme documents of the Krai.
Conclusions. The main problem hindering the digital technology use in the industry is low personnel staffing and resourcing. A unified approach to solving digital transformation problems in different strategic planning documents is required.
