A-Gen-Z Series

Can a single generation save the world? Gen Z may be humankind’s best, and greatest, hope in the existential battles against global warming, inequality, and political and social unrest.


To better understand Gen Z we studied them over a two-year period. We talked to them, in depth and on their terms. Our research included focus groups and a recent online survey of 10,000 adults in the United States and the United Kingdom. Through our exhaustive analysis, we cracked the code on what makes Gen Z tick. Our report describes how Gen Z will profoundly change how we live, work, shop, invest, interact, react, stay healthy, and stay informed.

How Urban Mobility Can Help Cities Limit Climate Change

More than 700 cities globally have committed to meet The Paris Agreement goals of halving their carbon emissions and limiting global warming to 1.5-degrees Celsius by 2030. The task isn’t easy, and time is running out, but cities can make significant progress by focusing greater attention on transport emissions, which account for about a third of their carbon footprint.


New research from the Oliver Wyman Forum offers individualized solutions for major global cities to help them meet their climate targets with sustainable mobility.
