Our Members

The World Economic Forum is a membership organization. Our Members comprise 1,000 of the world's top corporations, global enterprises usually with more than US$ 5 billion in turnover.

These enterprises rank among the top companies within their industry and play a leading role in shaping the future of their industry and region. Some of our Member companies join the Forum's Strategic and Industry Partnership communities, which are designed to deepen their engagement with the Forum's events, project and initiatives.

The Forum's Members are at the heart of all our activities.

Strategic Partners
The Strategic Partners community comprises a select group of 100 leading global companies representing diverse regions and industries selected for their alignment with the Forum's commitment to improving the state of the world. They believe in the power of multistakeholder interaction to drive positive change and work closely with the Forum to help shape the industry, regional and global agendas.

At the centre of the Forum's knowledge generation activities, Strategic Partners benefit from and contribute to the global knowledge base through working closely with the Forum to set the intellectual agenda of Forum meetings, driving the insight agenda of its publications and steering the impact of its initiatives.

Strategic Partners make a tangible impact on global issues and society by contributing to better policy-making, informing business decisions, sharing best practices and engaging stakeholders beyond commercial objectives.

Industry Partners
