World Economic Forum Strategic Partners represent 100 leading global companies, each providing essential leadership to support the Forum’s mission of improving the state of the world. Only the most recognized corporations with demonstrated track records of good governance and alignment with Forum values are invited to join this group.
Their economic and social significance means that Strategic Partner companies play a critical role as corporate global citizens. They shape the future through extensive contribution to developing and implementing Forum projects and championing public-private dialogue.
Strategic Partners may engage in up to six System Initiatives, regions or communities. Access to Forum networks and experts allows participation in strategic decision-making on the most important industry and cross-industry issues.
The Strategic Partner company’s chief executive officer or chairperson is typically the driving force in Forum communities, events and projects, and is personally involved in decision-making and shaping many Forum initiatives. The most senior executives also participate on steering boards and in advisory groups, where relevant.
