Forum Members are companies that are driving the world economy forward. The typical Member company is a global enterprise with more than US$ 5 billion in turnover, although this varies by industry and region.
In addition, these enterprises rank among the top companies within their industry and/or country (generally based on turnover in US$ millions; for financial institutions the criteria is based on assets) and play a leading role in shaping the future of their industry and/or region.
