Johnson Controls attends 2017 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting
This January, Johnson Controls will participate in the World Economic Forum’s 47th Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The Annual Meeting remains the foremost creative force for engaging the world’s top leaders in collaborative activities to shape the global, regional and industry agendas at the beginning of each year.
Under the theme of “Responsive and Responsible Leadership,” this year’s four-day conference will confront the global economic, political and social events that are affecting the world today and the role leaders play in solving these issues.
As head of delegation for the company, Chairman and CEO Alex Molinaroli will lend his time to the Governor’s community sessions for both the Energy and Infrastructure and Urban Development industries. He’s also involved in the CEO Climate Leaders community and serves as a sponsor of the Forum’s Grid Edge Transformation project, both of which will convene at the Annual Meeting.
With our continued focus on workplace diversity, we stay heavily involved in the World Economic Forum’s work on Gender Parity – Chief Marketing Officer Kim Metcalf-Kupres is on the Steering Committee for the Future of Gender Parity and contributes regularly to conversations on advancing the care economy and accelerating gender parity in high-growth sectors.
Joining Molinaroli and Metcalf-Kupres in Davos this year are President and Chief Operating Officer George Oliver, Chief Financial Officer Brian Stief and President, Power Solutions Joe Walicki. During the Annual Meeting, they’ll engage in conversations around the following system initiatives:
- Shaping the Future of Energy
- Shaping the Future of Environment and Natural Resource Security
- Shaping the Future of Mobility
- Shaping the Future of Production
