    Goals / Remit

    The World Economic Forum is the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation. The Forum engages the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

    It was established in 1971 as a not-for-profit foundation and is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. It is independent, impartial and not tied to any special interests. The Forum strives in all its efforts to demonstrate entrepreneurship in the global public interest while upholding the highest standards of governance. Moral and intellectual integrity is at the heart of everything it does.

    We believe that progress happens by bringing together people from all walks of life who have the drive and the influence to make positive change.

    Main EU files targeted

    The World Economic Forum supports the European Commission's strategic objectives, particularly in the areas of the twin digital and green transition. Please see relevant activities in the next section.
