The World Economic Forum, committed to improving the state of the world, is the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation. The Forum engages the foremost political, business and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas. The Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a hub for global, multistakeholder cooperation to develop policy frameworks and advance collaborations that accelerate the benefits of science and technology. The Platform Shaping the Future of Advanced Manufacturing and Value Chains examines manufacturing topics from research and development to design, consumer behavior and end-of-use cycles. We engage multiple industries as diverse as automotive, chemicals, electronics, healthcare and textiles. While manufacturing has been the foremost source of growth, jobs and innovation globally, its sectors also contribute heavily to CO2 emissions and climate change. Emerging technologies, however, are transforming manufacturing and value chains, enabling more efficient processes, and creating new value for industry, society and the environment.
