Banking on trust through transformative tech

Within the highly regulated financial services sector, upholding ethical standards and safeguarding the integrity of digital Infrastructure is essential for trustworthiness, particularly when there is a heavy reliance on data and AI models in business. Technological change always causes disruption, but AI and other transformative technologies are likely to have a far bigger impact and could lead to a lot more turbulence. The significant progress made on this front is counterbalanced by the real concerns around bias, privacy and intellectual property rights.

This session will explore the priorities and practices of financial services organizations to ensure the responsible and ethical use of AI and data.

Out of Balance with Water

The global water cycle is spiralling out of balance, with climate change aggravating torrential rains and intense droughts. The assumption that water supplies are stable, predictable and manageable is no longer true.
What are the most urgent levers to realize the potential of water as a catalyst and enabler for the Sustainable Development Goals?

Purpose-led sustainability agenda

Net zero remains front and center on board agendas, as businesses are under pressure to act urgently in developing well-defined plans of action for sustained outcomes. However, it is critical to drive the sustainability agenda for its true purpose rather than just for compliance or peer pressure.. Businesses must redefine sustainability and make it a core component of their purpose-driven business agenda.

Find out how forward-thinking business leaders are putting purpose-driven, flexible, scalable ESG plans into practice.
