PwC’s 26th Annual Global CEO Survey

On 16 January, PwC launched its 26th Annual Global CEO Survey in Davos. This year’s survey, which took place against the backdrop of climate change, technological disruption, demographic shifts, a fracturing world and social instability, reveals the issues that are top of mind for CEOs in the year ahead. Nearly three quarters of CEOs around the world believe economic growth will decline over the next 12 months, representing a ten-year low in confidence about global economic growth prospects. To learn more, read the report, and watch Bob Moritz, PwC Global Chairman, discuss the findings in Davos.

Investing in green skills to deliver net zero

­Delivering the net zero transition at pace will take deep and broad support for systemic change. That makes the ‘just transition’ crucial, not only to make sure it is inclusive but also as a key to building momentum. Drawing on recent research conducted in collaboration with UNICEF in support of Generation Unlimited, this session looked at why green skills should be at the heart of action to deliver net zero and covered practical steps for a path forward. To learn more, read the report, ‘The net zero generation’, and watch the session in Davos.
