Enterprise climate platform Watershed announced on Dec. 12 it is joining the World Economic Forum (WEF) as part of the Global Innovators Community, which brings together innovative start-ups and scale-ups.
As a Global Innovator, Watershed will help define the World Economic Forum’s global agenda on critical issues through Forum Platforms including the Centre for Nature and Climate and Future of Financial and Monetary Systems. Watershed will participate in the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January 2023.
“2023 will be the make-it-or-break-it year for corporate climate action,” said Watershed co-founder Taylor Francis. “Working with the World Economic Forum will expand Watershed’s perspective and reach as we apply our industry-leading measurement, reporting, and reductions capabilities to help corporations understand their carbon footprints, comply with new and existing regulation, and achieve critical climate impact.”
