During the Davos Agenda Forum, was lauched a new climate-action coalition named as “The Mission Possible Partnership”, which goals to accelerate the decarbonization of heavy industry and transport.
The goal of decarbonization remains a top priority for the shipping industry. Now, a new research published today by the World Economic Forum and Boston Consulting Group (BCG) shows how tackling supply chain emissions can be a game changer in the global fight against climate change.
Climate action failure continues to be among the highest impact risks of the next decade, says the World Economic Forum in a new report. Although lockdowns worldwide caused global emissions to fall in the first half of 2020, evidence from the 2008–2009 Financial Crisis warns that emissions could bounce back.
Following the COVID-19 pandemic situation along with the vaccine delivery phase, World Economic Forum and UNICEF inked an agreement with 18 shipping, airlines and logistics companies to deliver COVID-19 vaccines.
WTO members need to agree on an international deal to eliminate harmful fishing subsidies and help protect oceans and bounce them back, says Sir David Attenborough in a new video.
What used to be considered the “future of work” has already arrived, with the COVID-19 accelerating automation expected to displace 85 million jobs by 2025, new data by the World Economic Forum suggests.
This is the first time in its 15-year history, that the environment is at the top of list of issues likely to have a major impact over the next decade, as a year of extreme weather events and growing evidence of global heating catapulted the climate emergency to the top of the list of issues worrying the world’s elite.
The World Economic Forum collaborated with the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation for the launch of ‘Blockchain Value Framework’ which is a part of the white paper, Building Value with Blockchain Technology: How to Evaluate Blockchain’s Benefits.
