  • Davos Reflections: A look back on the World Economic Forum’s DAVOS 2022

    May 30, 2022

    Last week saw the return of the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos – its first in two years. It wasn’t just the January snow that was missing, with heads of state, A-list celebrities, and a sense of optimism also hard to find in the mountains of Switzerland.

    May 27, 2022

    Davos Digest 2022, Day Four: View from EEMEA Well, we made it. That’s a wrap on another year of the World Economic Forum in Davos. Today, the jets will take off and the cleaners will move in to sweep up all those discarded lanyards and business cards.

    Davos Digest 2022, Day Two And that’s a wrap on Davos, day two! The shadow of two issues loomed large over the agenda – climate change and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Notable appearances included U.S. climate envoy John Kerry, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. We saw panel discussions on decarbonisation across industries, with a special focus on those perennial problem industries – shipping, aviation, steel, and...

    May 23, 2022

    Davos Digest 2022: Day One  Welcome to day one of FleishmanHillard’s Davos Digest 2022.  Much has changed in the two years since the world’s elites gathered in a Swiss mountain village to discuss the world’s biggest problems.

  • Financial Services in 2022: The year for green action

    January 20, 2022

    Emily Rushgrove (She/Her), Associate Director—Corporate & Financial From pledges to action In 2021 we saw businesses collectively sign hundreds of pledges, accords and deals to tackle the climate emergency. In 2022, they will have to act. While some are already doing just that, they all too often remain trailblazers in their fields. That can’t last long. As my colleague Michael Hartt recently noted, just a few years ago climate denial was a boundary line to...
