Founding Story

A First-of-Its-Kind Initiative

When the Hydrogen Council launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2017, it was the first initiative of its kind in the world – and still is. Comprised initially of 13 leaders from the energy, transportation and manufacturing sectors, in just over five years, the Council now includes close to 150 multinational companies representing the entire hydrogen value chain. 

What is the
Hydrogen Council?

The Hydrogen Council is a global CEO-led initiative with a united vision and long-term ambition for hydrogen to foster the clean energy transition.

The Council believes that hydrogen has a key role to play in reaching our global decarbonization goals by helping to diversify energy sources worldwide; foster business and technological innovation as drivers for long-term economic growth; and decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors.

Using its global reach to promote collaboration between governments, industry and investors, the Council provides guidance on accelerating the deployment of hydrogen solutions around the world. It also acts as a business marketplace, a resource for safety standards and an interlocutor for the investment community.
