BCG@DAVOS - 2020

It takes many kinds of institutions and individuals to address our most urgent challenges. This is the idea at the heart of the World Economic Forum’s annual gathering in Davos, Switzerland. For BCG, a WEF partner, the theme of the 2020 meeting, Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World, has particular resonance.

A central challenge for companies in the next decade will be to deliver value not just to shareholders but to all stakeholders—to generate societal as well as financial benefits. Explore below for insights into the responsibilities of business in our complex world and imperatives for leaders in the 2020s.

From Disruption to Opportunity

Conversations at Davos this year focused less on the threat of technology and more on the innovations that emerge from the combination of people and machines. Rich Lesser and Karalee Close share their impressions of the week.

Davos and the Leadership Zeitgeist

The 2020 World Economic Forum meeting showed leaders thinking in broader terms and over longer timescales, writes BCG’s Martin Reeves. Climate change and multi-stakeholder capitalism dominated the conversation.

Looking Back on Davos 2020

Rich Lesser and Martin Reeves on the energy and urgency around climate and society at this year’s World Economic Forum meeting.

Adopting a Broader View of Sustainability

Mitigating the effects of climate change is essential, but so is providing energy for the world. Companies in the sector will have to consider these challenging issues through the widest lens possible.

Optimistic, Collaborative, Persistent

The future will not be as dire as many predict—so long as we work together to meet our most pressing challenges and apply the solutions with diligence and consistency.

Collaboration is the Only Way

Becoming a Young Global Leader (YGL) means joining a diverse, influential network of individuals committed to making change happen, which depends on accountability—and the power of collaboration.

A New Way to Measure Impact, Both Good and Bad

There's a big opportunity to create value for shareholders through innovations that improve our world. New companies should take stock of their Total Societal Impact to measure what matters most.

Is Your Company Fit to Compete in the 2020s?

Across industries, it is increasingly lucrative—and increasingly necessary—for companies to beat the average. But outperformance has become more difficult to sustain. Leaders must continually reinvent their companies to defy the mean and win in the new decade.

Highlights from BCG@Davos

WEF-BCG Project Updates

Future of Sustainable and Impact Investing

The reporting ecosystem for environmental, social and governance (ESG) data must evolve to unlock the significant business and societal impact that strong ESG performance enables. The paper summarizes the findings of an extensive consultation process, uncovering opportunities for collective action between the complex and diverse set of stakeholder groups that influence ESG reporting, and highlighting where greater action is needed to accelerate system-level progress. Read the "Seeking Return on ESG" White Paper Project Advisor: Wendy Woods

Advancing Cyberresilience

The power grid is an increasingly popular target for cyber-related threats around the world: including among hacktivists aiming to cause civil unrest or state-sponsored groups performing espionage activities. By identifying the key cyberresilience challenges affecting the electricity industry, Cyberresilience in the Electricity Industry: Principles and Guidance for Boards report provides seven strategies that boards of directors can institute to improve the cyberresilience of their organizations and broader electricity ecosystem. Read the "Cyberresilience in the Electricity Ecosystem" Report Project Advisor: Walter Bohmayr

Value in Healthcare

"Value in Healthcare: Accelerating the Pace of Health System Transformation” highlights three critical agenda items to drive value-based health systems forward at the global level: a “user guide” for health system transformation, a global roadmap for health informatics standardization, and a new Global Coalition for Value in Healthcare. Read "Accelerating the Pace of Health System Transformation" Project Advisor: Stefan Larsson

Future of Work

To help the industries prepare in an action-oriented way for the future of work, we created clear cross-industry recommendations and case studies linked to industry-specific roadmaps. Additionally, we show how a cost-benefit balance of reskilling workers in disrupted roles can be built for companies and government stakeholders and how many workers could be reskilled with a positive cost-benefit balance. With this report, we are building on our initial reports, in which we laid out scenarios of what the future of work might look like and introduced a new approach to identifying reskilling and job transition opportunities.
