Making a difference

PwC and the World Economic Forum

As a strategic partner to the WEF, we’re working together to help solve some of the important problems facing our world today.

A common agenda

We’re sharing our skills, expertise and insights with the WEF to make a real difference. From exploring how emerging technologies can be used sustainably to protect our planet, to addressing global issues related to anti-corruption and compliance, and much more.

The WEF Annual Meeting in Davos brings together prominent leaders from business, government, academia and the media to discuss pressing global issues and identify solutions to these challenges.

“The world today is dealing with lots of challenges, but more importantly, opportunities. Issues like income inequality, the impact of technology, refugees and immigration, fair taxation, cyber risks and other challenges. Davos is a great opportunity for us to be talking about all those topics with the right stakeholders, meaning business, government and community leaders around the world.”

WEF projects we're involved in

Internet of Things: Sustainable Models for Impact

The Internet of Things has a crucial role to play in the digital transformation of industries, which are at the core of such technological trends as cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, and robotics. There is an enormous potential for IoT to deliver social value as part of commercially viable strategies. We’re working with the WEF to address challenges around architecture, security, governance, business models and other issues resulting from the diffusion of connected computing devices.

Climate Governance Initiative

This initiative focuses on how companies are implementing the recommendations of the Financial Stability Board Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).  We’re working with the WEF to produce a set of principles around how boards govern climate-related impacts on their strategy, businesses, financial plans, risks and disclosure. The project involves drafting the principles and running a consultation process with companies to get them agreed, and producing a report for Davos 2019.

Fourth Industrial Revolution for the Earth

The innovations of 4IR hold great potential for improving management and governance of the global environment and delivering the systems change required to create clean, resource-secure and inclusive economies. We’re working with the WEF to harness that potential by mapping 4IR solutions against the most pressing environmental challenges, identifying and addressing related governance issues, and identifying and mobilising the critical ingredients that will enable 4IR solutions to scale.
