We have commenced our relationship with the World Economic Forum (WEF) as a partner since October 2023, and this is our first time participating in the Davos Annual Meeting. We have now become a global company with offices in more than 50 countries and regions. As a partner, we’ve taken the opportunity to work with the WEF on a range of initiatives, leveraging our global network and our knowledge, experience and capabilities.

The main theme of the Davos Annual Meeting 24 is “Rebuilding Trust”. NTT DATA believes that trust is the foundation of human interaction and positive societal structures, the antidote to uncertainty and conflict.

Businesses can rise to become trust leaders through their actions, communications, and collaborations. Trust is not only a business imperative, it also helps to strengthen community relations and create powerful innovations that contribute to addressing some of the world’s key challenges.

As a Trusted Global Innovator, committed to these values, we pledge to work closely with our clients, partners, employees, and stakeholders, upholding our promise to build a more trusting and connected society.

The World Economic Forum helps address many important and critical global challenges through its work with global organizations. NTT DATA Group’s contributions to WEF communities, extends across three core initiatives:

  • Urban Transformation
  • Advanced Manufacturing and Supply Chains
  • Nature and Climate

Independently of our partnership with the WEF, we’ve been involved in a huge array of work related to all three areas - from extensive research into soil regeneration, to providing new mobility solutions as part of urban transformation projects.

We believe the expertise we’ve gained in these areas through decades of work completed with clients will ensure we’re able to make highly valuable contributions to the WEF communities.
