Technology continues to transform the ways we engage with—and benefit from—information, organizations, and each other. But among the promise technology holds, there is also the potential for harm. To promote the good and protect against unintended consequences society needs a new, shared understanding of what it means to create trustworthy and ethical technology.


Deloitte Sponsors World Economic Forum’s Centre for Trustworthy Technology

Deloitte is a founding sponsor of the World Economic Forum’s new Centre for Trustworthy Technology to promote and facilitate ethical technology. The Centre’s mission is focused on the responsible production and use of emerging technologies, such as, the metaverse, blockchain, digital reality, quantum computing, and artificial intelligence.

The Centre is being established as a nonprofit associated with World Economic Forum’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR). The Patrick J. McGovern Foundation is also a founding sponsor of the Centre.

"Emerging technologies offer immense potential to change the world for good. We are proud to team with the World Economic Forum and the Patrick J. McGovern Foundation to lead in furthering the ethical adoption and responsible decision-making of these promising technologies. When technology is built in a purposeful way it can benefit businesses, all people and society overall."
-Joe Ucuzoglu, Deloitte Global CEO

Deloitte’s support of the Centre is the latest in our US Purpose Office Technology Trust Ethics practice’s ongoing commitment to build trust in technology and expand the equitable opportunities of a tech-savvy world to all people, which ultimately supports our organizational purpose to make an impact that matters by creating trust and confidence in a more equitable society.

As a founding sponsor, Deloitte will help the Centre achieve its strategic priorities through activities that include:

  • Creating tools and frameworks that promote ethical technology development and use
  • Facilitating knowledge sharing among technology leaders across the public and private sectors
  • Publishing insights to raise awareness about the importance of trustworthy technology
  • Exploring ways to adopt technology to advance the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals

Additionally, the Centre will present opportunities to convene stakeholders from government, business, academia, and society to shape the agenda on ethical and trustworthy technology. A member of Deloitte will also serve on the Centre’s board of directors.
