The digital revolution has transformed our daily lives. By paving the way for new practices and use cases, and allowing us to generate and process data on an unprecedented scale, digital technologies have heralded the dawn of a new age – one in which we are more connected and more efficient than ever before. But the digital transformation is far from complete and, with so much change still to come, people are rightly worried about what tomorrow has in store.

Empowered by its culture of innovation and its deep understanding of major societal issues, Thales is helping to shape the future direction of this revolution. Now, the Group has decided to develop a Digital Ethics Charter, setting out its 10 commitments on digital trust and responsibility.

These commitments, which are consistent with Thales’s purpose of “building a future we can all trust”, focus on three priorities: helping to make the world safer and more secure by increasing the safety and security of our solutions, using digital technologies to help build a more environmentally responsible world and placing humans at the centre of digital technologies and helping to build a more inclusive, more equitable world.
