When we think of a great company, we often frame it as an individual entity. But no company is an island; behind the scenes, greatness can only be built with the help of others. Prime Computer, just like every company, is part of an ecosystem that includes not only customers, suppliers and shareholders, but also a strong community of sustainability partners.

As a result, these partnerships have become vital to the success of any company and are as carefully planned and nurtured as any products or solutions that come to market. A partnership adds value to any business, which is explained in this blog article.

The partners we cooperate with are engaged and act toward a sustainable future.

Connecting the Dots

We Don’t Have Time

We Don’t Have Time is a disruptive social network for the growing movement of people who want to change the status quo. Prime Computer connects with climate activists because acting together to combat climate change is more effective than going it alone. We Don’t Have Time is based in Stockholm and has offices in Nairobi and Washington, D.C. People from all over the world come together on the platform to give climate reviews to businesses, politicians, and world leaders, praising solutions and action while calling out those who lag in the green transition. Businesses are welcome as partners to engage with the WDHT community and increase the reach and impact of their progress on climate.

Prime Computer is the technical sponsor of We Don’t Have Time’s Dino Talks and the upcoming COP27 backdoor event in Egypt. Ingmar Rentzhog, Founder of We Don’t Have Time, says about Prime Computer, “Prime Computer is a circular electronics brand, and they are doing their best to produce something much better for the environment. […] I am really proud to be among of the first owners of a Prime Computer laptop.

Steps for Successful Cooperation With Partners

Sustainability partnerships can take many different forms. Whether long-term partnerships that involve formal and legal commitments, media partnerships that draw attention to the most burning issues of our age, or networks that reinforce community exchanges, the same principles apply in all cases when it comes to fostering partnerships in sustainability.

  • Identify the opportunity

First, you need to identify the specific challenge partners face and then you  can help them solve it

  • Work toward a common goal

Establishing a common purpose sets the foundation and acts as the glue to hold the partnership together

  • Lean into each other’s strengths

Benefit from your common strengths and grow beyond them as teams

  • Communication is key

Open communication between the members of a partnership is critical when ensuring expectations are met equally

 

Conclusion

Markets are becoming increasingly complex and globally interconnected. To survive in this tough competition, strong strategic partnerships are needed. Companies can expand their relevance and addressable market, and clients benefit from stronger offerings made possible through collaborations. Especially concerning sustainability and the expansion of a circular economy, it is essential to deepen relationships with experts from a wide range of sustainability fields. Only then it is possible to offer sustainable products and services that help customers and companies to be more successful.
