The digital age is society's fourth industrial revolution

Like all revolutions, it brings exciting potential for huge economic benefits for businesses and people alike. But it also brings the challenge of ensuring that no one is left behind. 

De-globalisation. Unequal technology access. Protectionism. Lack of trust. The shifting landscape of jobs and skills. Inequality. Any of these could prevent the democratic spread of technological progress. 

The digital age is creating enormous wealth, but many are losing out. 

We can do better. 

So, as we strive to be pioneers in the digital revolution, we’ll only ever do things that work for everyone. That’s our commitment to society.
