Catch up with Accenture Strategy and Business in the Community's Responsible Business in a Digital Age broadcast during the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, recorded 23 January 2018.

Digital technologies can solve a great many challenges; improve access to healthcare and education, protecting the environment, and finding innovative new ways to solve our most pressing global problems. Yet there are also new risks or ‘unintended consequences’ emerging from digital transformation. From uneven access to technology and its benefits to concerns about the transparent use of data, and the environmental footprint of digital technology itself, we believe these unintended consequences must be addressed. That’s why together with our partner Accenture Strategy we developed the new Priorities for Responsible Business in a Digital Age.
