World Economic Forum

Davos Diaries

The 50th edition of the prestigious World Economic Forum 2020 was held in little town of Davos, Switzerland from January 21 to 24 with the core theme this year being ‘Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World’. The focus was on ‘reshaping capitalism’ to embrace all the stakeholders in the business eco-system to create a more sustainable world.

It brought together 3,000 participants from around the world, with the aim of giving concrete meaning to “stakeholder capitalism”, assist governments and international institutions in tracking progress towards the Paris Climate Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals, and facilitate discussions on technology and trade governance.

Mahindra Group senior management including Anand Mahindra, Dr. Pawan Goenka,  Dr. Anish Shah and C P Gurnani were present at Davos this year and participated in a number of discussions and also shared their views with the media.

In coverage that emerged from Davos, Anand Mahindra was seen as one of the top Indian philanthropists who is joining hands with other business tycoons to strengthen the fight against climate change, build a climate narrative and drive solutions that will ensure that both the natural world and people thrive.

“Scientific research tells us that the next decade will be critical in dealing with the global climate crisis. It is clear that the world cannot continue to pursue a business-as-usual approach and nobody can solve the problem on their own. Business, government, and philanthropy must collaborate within and among themselves to drive results quickly and at scale. India Climate Collaborative can make this happen. Together we will find solutions that will make climate action effective and impactful”, said Mr. Mahindra during his many interactions at Davos
