The World Economic Forum engages leaders from all facets of society—business, politics, academia, and beyond—to shape global, regional, and industry agendas and drive positive change. Like our fellow members, BCG attends the Annual Meeting in Davos, the Annual Meeting of the New Champions in China, and many other regional gatherings.
Our relationship goes beyond these meetings. The World Economic Forum taps our people and insights for its collaborative projects, publications, and global communities to engage stakeholders, improve policymaking, inform business decisions, and share best practices. Over the years, more than 100 BCGers have engaged.
We are currently involved on the below projects with the World Economic Forum, exploring a broad spectrum of topics.
Leaders from both the public and private sectors must take bold action to protect communities, organizations, and natural systems from the impacts of climate change. A new generation of data-driven and digital technologies will play a central role in this effort.
As global decarbonization efforts accelerate, there is a risk that the costs of the transition will not be fairly distributed. Coordinated action can help advance equity.
BCG is partnering with WEF to improve health outcomes, equitable access, and efficiency by unleashing and scaling the potential of data and digital solutions.
Manufacturers need to optimize for increased productivity, improved sustainability, greater resilience, and a stronger workforce. How can they harness the latest technologies to realize these goals?

Getting to net zero by 2050 is possible if the right technologies are brought to commercial scale within the next decade. BCG is a founding member of the First Movers Coalition, a group of forward-thinking companies that aim to jumpstart the global demand for critical emerging solutions by mobilizing the necessary investments and lowering costs. The coalition will work across eight key sectors: steel, cement, aluminum, chemicals, shipping, aviation, trucking, and direct air capture. FMC is a public-private partnership led by the US State Department (through John Kerry, the special presidential envoy for climate), and the World Economic Forum.
A major international initiative aims to cut carbon emissions by guaranteeing demand for new breakthrough technologies in hard-to-abate industries such as steel, transportation, and concrete.
