Successful resolution of sustainability issues will rarely occur through the power of the individual company, state, NGO alone. Only when joining forces can significant change take place and alter the premises and solutions space for those involved.

Established partnerships may break down traditional barriers of competition or opposition, when partners come together to explore how they can join forces to achieve an ambitious target.
