The success of tomorrow's global companies is closely linked to the health of the global system composed of complex, interdependent sub-systems — the environment, the social and political structure, and the economy.
Global companies play a role in shaping the sub-systems. In 2007, Infosys co-chaired an initiative, Tomorrow's Global Company, to identify specific ways in which global companies can fulfill this role by 'expanding the space' in which they operate.
The World Economic Forum
Infosys has been a part of the World Economic Forum (WEF) since 1997. Our engagement has evolved and matured, and in 2005, we became a Strategic Partner of the forum.
Infosys is a partner of the Forum of Young Global Leaders, a unique group of global achievers, aged below 40 years, who are striving to make a difference to the world that we live in. We are also a partner of WEF's Global Growth Companies, a community of high-growth companies driving economic and social change.
We play an active role in the forum through participation, collaboration and hosting of events. N.R. Narayana Murthy, Chairman of the Board and Chief Mentor, was the Co-Chair of the Annual Meeting 2005 in Davos. Nandan Nilekani, former CEO, President and Managing Director, was the Co-Chair of the World Economic Forum - India Economic Summit 2005 held in New Delhi. He was also the Co-Chair of the East Asia Summit in Tokyo in June 2006 and the India Economic Summit in November 2006.
