At the dawn of the 5G era, the world faces a perfect storm as technology is driving transformational changes in consumer behavior, politics, and the global economy. Despite their tremendous potential to build a better future, these changes can create uncertainty and confusion for some people. The Digital Declaration is a call to action for the private sector to step up and provide the leadership to change these uncertainties into opportunities, not just for themselves, but for all.
Announced at the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos with the backing of 40 CEOs from across the industry, the Digital Declaration sets out aspirational guidelines that put responsible leadership at the heart of decision making, focusing technology on solving problems that are challenging communities. Today the Declaration counts more than 80 CEOs, with u-blox joining in early 2020.
At a time of considerable erosion of trust in businesses, governments, and traditional institutions, the declaration seeks to extend consumer trust for the digital age, deliver inclusive growth and opportunities for all, and foster an environment that nurtures innovation. Putting the concerns of today’s customers and citizens front and center, the Digital Declaration aims to support the development of sustainable businesses that prosper and play their part in creating a better future, inspiring a new style of leadership.
