The Reinhard Mohn Prize 2016 went to Klaus Schwab, founder and chairman of the World Economic Forum in Geneva, as a champion of responsible entrepreneurship. Klaus Schwab was one of the first international leaders to recognize the corporate world's unique economic and social responsibility to society in an increasingly globalized world.

The Bertelsmann Stiftung honored him for his efforts in building bridges between governments, the business community and civil society, thereby transcending institutional borders. Throughout his work, he has persisted in promoting dialogue and the exchange of knowledge and ideas. With the Wold Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab has created a platform for all stakeholders to convene and tackle the challenges we face today. Through this platform, Klaus Schwab has successfully placed issues such as globalization and digitization on the global agenda.
