The PACE of Change: COVID-19 Accelerating Automation

    View Author August 2020

    Policy, Automation, Climate and Ethics (PACE) are at the heart of significant global changes that in turn affect corporate behaviours and governance.

    2020 has brought unprecedented forced disruption from a global pandemic, seen the legal exit of the UK from the European Union (to be followed by the UK’s departure from the Single Market and Customs Union at the end of the year), created global political movements and prompted a keener focus on climate change. This has brought wider societal and global pressures into sharper focus for many businesses. The PACE of Change takes a research-led look at each of these issues in detail and explores key implications for businesses.
