How to promote inclusive and diverse innovation, investment opportunities and corporate social responsibility in digital technologies?
6 Dec 2021 14:15h - 15:15h
Event reportThis high-level exchange was devoted to the role of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the digital age. Mr Paul Mitchell (Senior Director, Tech Policy, Microsoft) defined CSR in this context as sustainable governance of digital technologies with respect to human rights and new labour-tech relationships that achieve equity in access among all different sectors of society. Participants of the high-level exchange addressed three main questions:
- What does CSR in the digital world mean and what are the challenges of digital transformation?
- Is it possible to regulate digital technologies without slowing down innovation? What could be regulated and how to address CSR?
- the responsibilities of the technical sector
- more focus on what is causing disinformation rather than how it spreads – new developments at the EU level – Digital Services Act (DSA) and Digital Markets Act (DMA), commissions on disinformation
- search for voluntary and non-regulatory ways for tech giants to ensure that the public receives trusted sources of information
- Where should be the boundary between self-regulation and formal regulation?
