15Mega trends Globalization Technology Environment Changes in work Demographics & peopleConsumptionGlobalizationGlobal business, multi-regional, local CSREnergy and resourcesTowards a sustainable futureClimate change and environmental pollutionFinding solutionsTechnologyHealth, communications, transport, leisure, entertainment, food, energy, business models …New consumption patternsMoral economy, informed consumers and AsiaChanges in the world of workTalent, ageing, connected and mobileGlobalisationThe social and environmental impact of business operations and products is increasingly measured on a global scale. Today it matters how Chinese suppliers treat their workers and whether Peruvian coffee is grown under fair trade conditions. Companies that lead the field in CSR often have a competitive advantage over their rivals; in an increasingly moral economy product features like fairtrade can be a powerful value-adding feature.As a result, CSR will continue to spread across the supply chain and across borders. Climate change, urbanisation, and poverty are global challenges that require global solutions. With their capital, power, and innovative potential, firms have a moral responsibility to help solve these problems. As a result, CSR has to consider an ever increasing range of social and environmental factors from around the globe. Finally, globalisation results in an intensified scramble for resources, capital, labour and market share. CSR helps companies to raise their attractiveness as a customer, partner, employer, or supplier.New consumption pattern sOver the past years consumption has changed dramatically. Environmental awareness, rising health concerns, and a widespread call for effi ciency have fostered consumers that long for a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle (LOHAS). In the United States 79 percent of consumers say that the sustainability of a product matters when making a buying decision. Ethical consumerism is the new moral benchmark, reflecting not only one’s social status, but also one’s norms and values.CSR helps to ensure that the products and services a company offers adhere to the social and environmental standards consumers are seeking. In a customer-driven economy companies have to reinvent themselves.Through the emergence of Web 2.0 and social commerce privacy and secrecy have been replaced by transparency and publicity. Companies that do wrong are punished by an outcry of public anger and a subsequent devaluation of their public image. Those that rely heavily on intangible assets, like reputation, brand image, and trust are particularly vulnerable. CSR can manage these risks, avoid scandals, and help companies gain a unique selling position.Changes in the world of work - winning the war for talentThe worldwide war for talent will continue to expand. The modern worker is much more mobile, and qualified workers are increasingly scarce. Companies must provide the right incentives to retain and attract employees. In countries like Denmark, where unemployment is low, a company’s CSR policy is a key determinant of its attractiveness as an employer. In a survey of privately held businesses (Grant Thornton) 65 percent of the respondents cited that recruitment and retention of staff was the most important factor for doing CSR. Saving the planet came fi fth. CSR is the new measure of corporate culture, the binding component between different departments, and a key determinant of a company’s innovation policy.Energy and resources - Towards sustainable businessUntil 2030, global energy demand is predicted to grow by 55 percent. At the same time the amount of available resources will continue to decline. By 2025, the number of people living with extreme water scarcity will rise to a quarter of the world’s population. In the future, the scramble for resources will be a major cause of confl ict. The solution is to be more effi cient and promote sustainability. CSR-led initiatives can offset rising prices, provide a competitive advantage, and act as a major tool for the aversion of social crisis. CSR is no longer just about being good, managing the public image, or improving products: Sustainability and effi ciency initiatives save costs and increase the value of the company. The FTSE4Good Index and the emergence of external CSR rankings (for instance Sustainable Value) highlight how companies are increasingly assessed in terms of their sustainability and CSR activities.Climate change and environmental pollution - Finding solutionsClimate change is perhaps the biggest social, economic and environmental challenge facing the planet. Rising sea levels, increasing droughts and famine, and a decrease in water availability will have dramatic impacts. Environmental pollution will cause further health problems. Companies play a key role in addressing these problems. They have the capital and innovative potential to provide solutions. Solution-oriented CSR is the key vehicle to promote sustainability and avert widespread disaster. CSR could be the business blueprint for the future. It will reshape business ecosystems, changing the way companies are organized and engage with their stakeholders. In a customer-driven economy, CSR will be actively managed, an integral part of company strategy, and a hard factor for company success. It will impact the nature of competition, foster the development of sustainability related innovations, and facilitate the emergence of new, more successful, business models.15

18“The size of the world economy will triple over the next four decades as emerging-market economies wield increasing power”2010 $62 trillion2030 $142 trillionAs the economic crisis fades in the rearview mirror, some analysts on Wall Street and in Washington expect the world economy to enter a supercycle, a prolonged global growth spurt powered by the emerging markets. This isn't just some fringe theory: The "Super-Cycle Report" by Standard Chartered Bank posits that world GDP will double in the next two decade as a result of "industrialization and urbanization of emerging markets and global trade." The sentiment was widely shared among the attendees of the latest World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and among such heavyweights as Goldman Sachs and PricewaterhouseCoopers. Emerging markets, rising to make up half the world economy by 2017, are expected to pull the sluggish, debt-laden advanced economies -- United States, Europe, and Japan -- along. In this bifurcated world, the emerging juggernauts such as China, South Korea, and India will decouple from the advanced nations, relegating the mantra "when the U.S. economy sneezes, the world catches a cold" to the ash heap of history.“World GDP to double within two decades”

EuromonitorThe "recession baby-boom" may be coming to an end after new figures revealed that the number of pregnancies has fallen to the lowest level in five years.During the economic downturn Britain's population grew faster than any other in Europe, fuelled by the biggest surge in births for 40 years.The high birth rate was attributed to immigration and a new generation of "recession babies", with couples choosing to have a second or third child rather than both return to work.In 2012, there were an estimated 884,748 conceptions in women of all ages, compared with 909,109 in 2011, a decrease of 2.7%.However, the Office for National Statistics has disclosed that in 2012 the number of pregnancies in England and Wales fell in every age group except the over 35s.Related ArticlesUK fastest growing population in EU with 48 more people an hour 08 Aug 201328 Sep 2011ONS: A quarter of Britons have 'no religion at all' Councils coping with higher population figures than was thought 30 Apr 2013Authorities failed to register 500,000 migrants, ONS admits 07 May 2013Migrants to send UK population soaring 26 Oct 2011We must break down the barriers of Britain’s ghettos 10 Aug 2013The declining birth rate comes as the economy begins to recover from the downturn.Dr Jonathan Cave, an economist and population expert at Warwick University, said: "I think it's very reasonable to assume that the fertility rates would go down. Work can disincentivise people from having children."If people are primarily returning to work and re-identifying with workplace participation, they will shift their productive efforts away from having children."The number of teenage pregnancies continues to drop, but the proportion of young girls keeping their babies has risen slightly, according to new figures.The number of pregnancies in those under 18 fell to 27,834 in 2012 compared with 31,051 in 2011 – a 10% drop. Some 5,432 under-16s fell pregnant in 2012, compared with 5,991 in 2011 (a fall of 9.3%).Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reveals that the under-18 conception rate remains the lowest since 1969 at 27.9 per 1,000 women aged 15 to 17.However, the percentage of pregnancies in young girls resulting in abortion has fallen slightly.Among under-16s, some 3,251 pregnancies resulted in abortion – 59.8% of the total. This is down on 60.2% the previous year and 62.5% the year before that.Between 2011 and 2012, pregnancy rates increased for women aged 35 years and over, and decreased for those under 35.The conception rate for women aged 40 and over has more than doubled since 1990, while the number of women in this age group conceiving has risen from 12,032 in 1990 to almost 29,000 in 2011 and 2012.The largest percentage increase in conception rates occurred among women aged 35 to 39 (up 1%), and by 0.7% for women aged 40 and over.For women aged 40 and over, the percentage of conceptions leading to abortion fell from 43% in 1990 to 28% in 2010, 2011 and 2012.The ONS said: "Reasons for an increased number of women conceiving at ages 30 and above include increased participation in higher education, increased female participation in the labour force, the increasing importance of a career, the rising opportunity costs of childbearing, labour market uncertainty, housing factors and instability of partnerships."The data also revealed a continuing rise in the number of pregnancies and births outside marriage.In 2012, conceptions outside of a marriage or civil partnership accounted for 57% of all conceptions, compared with 54% in 2002 and 44% in 1992."In 2012 the proportion of conceptions outside marriage/civil partnership which resulted in a maternity (birth) was 69%, compared with 92% of conceptions inside marriage/civil partnership," the ONS saidIn 2015, those aged 40+ will outnumber under-40s

The mobile datatraffic forecast is part of the comprehensive Cisco VNI study. The Cisco VNI Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast is published annually in February. The comprehensive Cisco VNI Forecast is published annually inJune, and it includes a fixed IP traffic forecast as well as the updated Mobile Data Traffic Forecast of the same year.A. Although mobile data traffic has historically been a small percentage of overall global IP traffic, mobile data traffic is expected to grow at a 61 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 to 2018, three times faster than the growth of global IP fixed traffic during the same period. Given the rapid growth and changing dynamics in the mobile data space, this data is of great interest to Cisco. We also expect that ourcustomers (in all segments) and the industry at large can benefit from our findings.Q. Why does Cisco develop and maintain the Cisco VNI Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast?Q. Does the Cisco VNI Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast include Wi-Fi?A. Wi-Fi is not included, except in the calculation of traffic offloaded from the mobile network (along with femtocell). Wi-Fi is included as a fixed network component in the comprehensive Cisco VNI Traffic Forecast. For the purposes of this study, offload pertains to traffic from dual mode devices (i.e., supports cellular and Wi‑Fi connectivity; excluding laptops) over Wi-Fi and small cell networks. Offloading occurs at the user/device level when one switches from a cellular connection to Wi-Fi/small cell access. Our mobile offload projections include traffic from both public hotspots as well as residential Wi-Fi networks.Q. What was the global mobile data traffic growth rate in 2013?A. In 2013, global mobile data traffic grew more than 81 percent, year over year, to 1.5 exabytes per month. Mobile data traffic growth varied by region, with the slowest year-over-year growth experienced by Western Europe at 57percent. The highest growth rates were experienced by the Middle East and Africa (107 percent) and Latin America (105).Q. What were the reasons behind the comparatively slower mobile data traffic growth rates in Western Europe in2013?A. There are three key reasons for the lower mobile data traffic growth in Europe last year:● The ongoing implementation of tiered mobile data packages: First introduced in 2009 and 2010, the majority of mobile users have now been migrated to tiered plans. Many operators across the globe have eliminated unlimited data plans.● A continued slowdown in the number of mobile-connected laptop net additions: The number of mobile-connected laptops in Western Europe grew only 6 percent last year, reaching nearly 39 million at the end of2013. Western Europe was the only region to experience single-digit laptop growth; all other regions exhibited at least 17 percent or higher laptop growth. Because mobile-connected laptops have historically been a major contributor to mobile data traffic volume, the slowing growth has had a significant impact on our estimates.● An increase in the amount of mobile traffic offloaded to the fixed network: Operators have encouraged the offload of traffic onto Wi-Fi networks, and offload rates continue to be high around the world. Tablet traffic that might have migrated to mobile networks has largely remained on fixed networks.Q. What is the future outlook for mobile data traffic growth based on the updated forecast?A. Major findings of the Cisco VNI Global Mobile Data Forecast, 2013–2018 include the following points:● By 2018, global mobile data traffic will reach 15.9 exabytes per month, or a run rate of 190 exabytes annually.● Smartphones will be 66 percent of total mobile data traffic in 2018, compared to 62 percent in 2013.● Globally, the average mobile network connection speed increased 2.6-fold in 2013 (1.4 Mbps) and willnearly double by 2018, reaching 2.5 Mbps.● 4G connections will be 15 percent of total mobile connections in 2018 and will account for 51 percent ofmobile data traffic.● 52 percent of global mobile data traffic will be offloaded in 2018, up from 45 percent in 2013.● By 2018, 69 percent of the world’s mobile data traffic will be video, up from 53 percent in 2013.● The Middle East and Africa will have the strongest mobile data traffic growth of any region over the forecastperiod, with a 70 percent CAGR, followed by Central and Eastern Europe at 68 percent and AsiaPacific at 67 percent.● Globally, 79 percent of smartphones and tablets will be IPv6-capable in 2018, up from 46 percent in 2013.Q. In the 2013 Cisco VNI Global Mobile Data Forecast, you predicted a 2012–2017 global CAGR of 66 percent. In this update, you predict a 2013–2018 global CAGR of 61 percent. Why is the projected global growth rate slowing?A. The slight slowing in the growth rate is a typical example of S-curve growth, but the actual amount of traffic continues to represent significant growth.

59This study, which I did with G This study, which I did with G. Elliott Wimmer and Brian Knutson at Stanford, was the first to use fMRI technology to document the disconnect people feel with their future selves. But it built on existing research. For example, one study asked people how many hours they’d be willing to spend tutoring someone immediately and in the future and how much time they thought their classmates could donate immediately. They were stingy with their own time in the present but more willing to volunteer their time in the future and their classmates’ time in the present, which suggests they thought of their future selves and other people in the same way. Studies have also shown that we have a third-person perspective on ourselves in the distant future. So, if you imagine your birthday next year, you’ll envision the scene as if you were looking out from your own eyes. But if you imagine it 20 years from now, you’ll probably picture an older version of yourself blowing out the candles. This is true for most but not all people. The scans revealed that some subjects did think of their current and future selves as the same person, and in our asset allocation task, those people were more likely to delay their gains. That’s why we wanted to see if we could change the attitudes of everyone else. Could we help people get to know—and show more regard for—their future selves?

Pace of change40% worry that ‘...their organisations will be unable to keep up with technology change and will lose their competitive edge.’Some 35% of large companies don't believe their web infrastructures will be able to meet demands of mobile.The bigger issue though, and one that is often missed, relates to how technology meshes with people, structures and business models. Technology can’t exist as an abstract or be layered upon old foundations; in many cases going digital requires a whole new business culture and set of operations if it is to be a success.Technology is moving between 3-5 times faster than management.
