#Inclusive Economy


Automation will have a profound impact on the future of work and society.

Automation technologies—including robotics, artificial intelligence, sensors, and autonomous vehicles—offer many potential positive impacts for productivity, health, safety, and environment. Yet they will also displace millions of workers around the world and require large investments in skills training. Transitioning to these new technologies will also pose many new challenges for companies in ethics, human rights, and privacy.

This webinar will provide an overview of the types of impacts automation will bring. It will also explore ways that sustainability teams could play a more active role in the design and implementation of new technologies and collaborate with stakeholders to ensure automation both advances sustainability objectives and promotes good jobs for the future.
