Biography:

Having worked in various countries and units within the Royal Dutch/Shell Group since 1972, Ged Davis is now Shell's Head of Scenario Processes and Applications. In this capacity Davis recently headed the World Business Council for Sustainable Development's (WBCSD) Scenario Project team responsible for producing work on sustainable development from the international business community's perspective.

WBSCD's work challenges traditional short-sighted notions of First Raise Our Growth (FROG); it advocates a shared commitment from society to overcoming the threats we face in the future. By stimulating debate between non-governmental organisations, government and business on economic development, environmental protection and social responsibility, the work of Davis and his colleagues contributes to an on-going international policy dialogue.
