Bellona collaborates with the industry in various ways: Through our partnership programme, in our stakeholder foras, and with companies advertising on our website and in our publications and reports. We are proud that the industry sees the value of a professional and viable Bellona as a committed contributor to our society.
In 1998 Bellona established a partnership program with the private sector. In close dialogue with industry stakeholders, the aim is to achieve the best possible environmental solutions. Through longstanding work we have gained a high level of expertise and knowledge on how to integrate environmental considerations in an increasing number of enterprises. We work together with our partners to solve challenges related to environmental technology and implement solutions.
Technological solutions to many of the environmental challenges already exist today. Industry players are important drivers for implementing these environmental solutions, but depend on favorable conditions to commercialize and bring solutions to the market.
Bellona’s stakeholder foras are multidisciplinary meetings to exchange experiences, knowledge sharing and policy development. A key objective is to exchange ideas and relevant information to achieve consensus on the means and conditions that must be in place to implement new measures and policies.
The participants in the stakeholder foras are responsible for financing the activities of the fora. The members enter into three-year agreements with Bellona where they provide an annual contribution.
Our website is an advertising platform where different actors are invited to provide financial support to Bellona’s work for solutions on environment and climate issues. Our advertisers range from small and medium enterprises to big international companies. Our advertisers recognize the value of a strong and viable Bellona, and this support makes us better equipped to address important environmental issues and climate challenges.
Let’s work together!
Bellona recognized early on that neither the environmental organizations nor the government alone could drive forward solutions to the environmental challenges we’re facing. We are dependent on the industry increasingly understanding the consequences of their presence, and Bellona is working hard for companies to be prepared to tackle the environmental challenges.
Our collaboration with Bellona is founded on the recognition that new technologies and industrial solutions are vital to solving the global climate and environmental challenges.Stein Lier-Hansen, Director General, The Federation of Norwegian Industries
