Social Media: Climate Change Among Top Concerns of Leading CEOs

New data assessing the social media of the world’s leading CEOs suggests that climate change has become a prominent topic in the most powerful executive boardrooms. This is the implication of new research released yesterday by data and analytics firm Global Data that shows climate change is now one of the most frequently mentioned themes among the world’s leading CEOs on Twitter. Its CEO Influencer platform, which captures the Twitter discussions of over 300 global CEOs, found the number of conversations referring to climate change jumped by 200 percent from the second to the third quarter of 2019. GlobalData’s Influence Research Head, Amandeep Gill, explained that CEOs principally used Twitter to discuss climate change’s broad impact on the economy, health, and governance. The increase is likely to be linked to the growing public demand for increased climate action this year by groups such as Extinction Rebellion and the Global Climate Strikes.
