They are inescapable and they are here now. Successful organisations will be the ones who can adapt to these trends and discover how to treat them as opportunities.

Are you creating business value through eco-efficiency?

Resource scarcity and climate change, urbanisation and demographic changes consistently feature in the top three megatrends set to transform business, according to CEOs - hopefully in a positive way.

The changing global footprint

In our 17th Annual Global CEO Survey, nearly one third CEOs say their main opportunity for growth lies in existing markets, compared to just 14% who say the same for new geographic markets. Many leaders are also reviewing their portfolio of top overseas markets. This year CEOs see the US, Germany and the UK as more attractive than some of the BRICS markets, compared to last year. And they’re turning to newer markets to find growth as well – in particular Indonesia, Mexico, Turkey, Thailand and Vietnam.
