WEF 2020 - for a Cohesive and Sustainable World
The 50th annual meeting of the World Economic Forum taking place in Davos, Switzerland, from Jan 21-24, 2020, will focus on global, regional and national initiatives that generate positive impact for all stakeholders. Four global issues that will feature prominently on the agenda are:
- How to address the urgent climate and environmental challenges that are harming our ecology and economy;
- How to transform industries to achieve more sustainable and inclusive business models as new
political, economic and societal priorities change trade and consumption patterns;
- How to govern the technologies driving the Fourth Industrial Revolution so they benefit business and society while minimizing their risks to them; and
- How to adapt to the demographic, social and technological trends reshaping education, employment and entrepreneurship.
As a technology leader that is driving the digital transformation of industries, ABB is writing the future of globalization with smarter ways to work, live and move, as well as to power and produce.
