Banking and capital markets
The pandemic has set the stage for a looming credit crisis. Capital markets has an opportunity to help economies and also re-invent itself.
Work, wages and job creation
Accenture is partnering with the World Economic Forum’s Centre for the New Economy and Society to further develop a coalition of businesses, governments, and others to promote accelerated and resilient employment growth for jobs of the future while committing to high standards of job quality and worker well-being. This work includes original economic research on the potential to drive resilient job creation in markets of the future as well as playbooks that public and private sector stakeholders can use to support workers as they transition to better, more secure post-COVID livelihoods.
Media, entertainment and sports
The World Economic Forum and Accenture recently published a series of papers examining changes across the media and platforms ecosystem with a focus on the power of media to reflect a more diverse society.
Read the series from The World Economic Forum:
- Benchmarking Diversity and Inclusion in Media and Entertainment: The Audience Representation Index
- Reflecting Society: The State of Diverse Representation in Media and Entertainment
- Why diversity is critical to media and entertainment - and how to achieve it
- 4 ways media and entertainment could be more equitable and diverse
- What can China tell us about the future of social commerce and content?
As part of a broader cyber resilience project, the World Economic Forum’s Centre for Cybersecurity and Accenture recently published the Global Cybersecurity Outlook 2022 Report. This inaugural report examines cybersecurity and cyber resilience trends and insights collected from 120 global cyber leaders. A key finding of the report is a divergence in how Business Leaders and Security-focused Leaders view their current state of cyber resilience.
Net zero carbon cities
Accenture is supporting the World Economic Forum to localize Net Zero through the Net Zero Carbon Cities program. Cities are the frontline in tackling climate change – representing both the biggest challenge and opportunity to keep warming well below 2°C. Currently, more than half of the global population live in cities, consuming 78% of the world’s primary energy. generating more than 70% of global carbon emissions. By 2050, over two-thirds of the world population are set to live in cities. Changes need to happen now to reduce emissions and deliver resilient and equitable urban ecosystems. The mission is to create an enabling environment for clean electrification and circularity, resulting in urban decarbonization and resilience. The program aims to do this by fostering public private collaboration to bridge the gap across the energy, built environment and transport sectors.
Mobilizing investments for clean energy in emerging economies
Chemical and advanced materials
5 key enablers are needed to accelerate the development and deployment of low-carbon emitting technologies and transform the chemical value chains towards climate neutrality.
Mining and metals

Accenture supported the World Economic Forum’s Electricity Industry Action group in creation of the System Value framework, which more holistically evaluates economic, environmental, social and technical outcomes of potential energy solutions. The framework can be used to support a diverse range of activities including investment decisions, policy decisions, as well as public-private dialogues between business, regulators and policy makers on solutions to accelerate economic growth and a clean energy transition.
