Report 5: TMT Industry as the Driver of Change
TMT companies are often the first to develop innovative solutions and to face increasingly sophisticated regulation of key technologies they develop. As such, they have a unique opportunity to shape many areas including data strategies aligned to I&D, the future of remote work, and due diligence requirements for supply chains. A focus on data ethics underscores companies' management of tangled data regulations and obligations as stewards of data. Additionally, TMT companies will also continue to develop and support innovative technologies to access and store renewable energy.
The final report of this series explores:
- how innovative technologies for renewable energy are accelerating the move to net zero
- key data analysis and utilization strategies that are deepening I&D goal measurement
- how the hybrid work landscape impacts companies' bottom lines
- why TMT companies should prepare for deepening due diligence requirements in supply chains
- the interlinked importance of worker conditions, sustainability and data protection
- the three important elements in any data-ethics approach — accountability, transparency and security
