From Østfold to Viken

As Østfold merges with Akershus and Buskerud into Viken county, so does the PentaHelix method increase its reach. Now we will have a much larger reach than before, states Stine Nygaard. With the merger, our partners from Østfold will be working throughout the Viken county to develop new SECAPs under the PentaHelix-method. The Klimapartnere Østfold, now Klimapartnere Viken, will continue to work in ensuring a reduction of Greenhouse gas emissions through close collaboration across the private and public sector. Together with its partners, the network is leading the way for «greener solutions».

For Viken, the main goal is to ensure that the regions’ business and the industry is well-prepared for the requirements of tomorrow in a low carbon emission society. The Klimapartnere-model relies on the sharing of knowledge and focusing on solutions.

We will take advantage of the business opportunities that climate action represents for the developing of new green goods and services. Collaboration and dialogue are the main criteria in our value creation. Our partners across industry, business, and academia share knowledge and together we find new solutions, say Nygaard.
