NOT ALONE, BUT WITH PARTNERS AND FRIENDS
We seek to pioneer a new kind of business relationship. One that co-creates and even co-owns solutions with non for profit organizations, the public sector, local stakeholders, other companies and academics.
We believe this approach will bring the greatest benefit to both Danone and our partners. Co-creation, open source practice and mutual benefit business models are already transforming our business practices, broadening our vision and enriching the different ways we operate. Every day, this unique way of doing business not only brings us a unique competitive advantage it also delivers new inclusive business models with greatly improved social, environmental and economic impacts.
So far, we have established several kinds of co-creation mechanisms including partnerships, alliances and mixed boards. We will continue to experiment with new models and enthusiastically participate in the invention of new business practices.
