Partnerships for sustainability

Collaborating for a better future

Our vision of a safe and sustainable future is not ours alone and we know we can achieve more in collaboration with others. We work in partnership with several organizations, contributing technology and sustainability expertise as well as funding to reach our shared goals.

Why it matters

Our purpose and vision set ambitious direction and goals for how we want to make a difference. The biggest issues are not solved alone and the best ideas are developed together.

As a knowledge-based organization, we constantly need to learn, be challenged and inspired by other organizations – and challenge and inspire them in return.

Industry partnerships

Through our daily business in more than 100 countries, we work together with customers, suppliers and competitors in industry associations and on initiatives at national, regional and global levels.

We strive to bring our technical insight and market foresight into the work of industry associations to create sustainable business environments.
