Our continuous engagement
We strongly believe in the World Economic Forum’s objective of identifying and discussing themes that shape the global agenda. We believe it is our responsibility, as a global organization, to support and contribute to these efforts. That’s why we have been long-time supporters and Strategic Partners since 2003. The World Economic Forum is not just about an annual meeting in Davos, it is an all year commitment.

It analyses the perceived impact and likelihood of prevalent global risks over a ten-year time horizon.

It is an opportunity to engage with multiple stakeholder groups through a range of initiatives and inspiring debates around key topics such as global risks and how they may be managed.
