The agreement is initially signed for one year, with options for another two years. ZERO will receive NOK 200,000 annually for the duration of the agreement.
For Hydro, the green shift is about cutting emissions while continuing to produce and use resources smarter. Hydro provides customers with greener materials and knowledge of how to design for a circular economy.
“Collaboration is the key to developing a green and sustainable economy. We are therefore proud to enter into a new collaboration with the environmental organization ZERO,” says Bjørn Kjetil Mauritzen, Head of Hydro’s Sustainability Office.
ZERO and Hydro have also partnered earlier, including the Powerhouse collaboration and through the annual ZERO conference in Oslo.
“It is very important that Hydro is putting climate technology high on the agenda and is working for lower emissions and more circular solutions in production and use of aluminium,” says Marius Holm, head of ZERO. “We need businesses that will lead the way, and ZERO is looking forward to cooperate, and challenge, Hydro in this area.”
The environmental foundation ZERO is an independent, non-profit organization founded in 2002, focused on climate issues and zero-emission solutions. ZERO website (in Norwegian)
