Insights from the CEO



Peter Bakker

Food for thought and action for sure. Allow me to draw a number of conclusions from both the publications and my many meetings in Abu Dhabi and Davos:

In 2023, WBCSD will be plotting significant efforts on many of these areas. Next to the already mentioned BCTI launch, a major effort to have global business play a central role into COP28 is underway, nature positive roadmaps for key sectors are in development, and we will make sure that, through the CFO Network, we are a leading shaper of the Corporate Accountability System.

Despite the uncertainties in the global economy, sustainability is now mainstream.

As the leading global platform for business action, we at WBCSD look very much forward to supporting you and your company in the year ahead.
