Trailblazers, Shapers and Innovators
The World Economic Forum’s Community of Global Growth Companies brings together, and connects, the most dynamic, high-growth companies from around the world: trailblazers, shapers and innovators that are also deeply committed to the Forum’s mission of improving the state of the world.
As of January 2013, the Community includes more than 360 members from 70 countries. Membership is by invitation only, reviewed by a committee that applies strict selection criteria, and limited to 50 new companies globally each year. Eligible companies generally have a turnover between US$ 100 million and US$ 5 billion, and consistent annual growth rates that exceed industry and regional averages during, at least, the past three years.
Global Growth Companies play a crucial role in their industries and societies: they are among the top job creators in economies around the world; they innovate constantly so that they can grow sustainably; and they seek and implement new models of leadership so that they can thrive in the complex ecosystems in which they operate. This report profiles 25 members of the Global Growth Community that provide some of the most compelling examples of their impact in these three key pillars for corporate citizenship.
The World Economic Forum is proud of the Global Growth Companies Community. We are confident that these new champions will fully leverage the platform that the Forum provides them, and that they continue their commitment to our mission to improve the state of the world.
