Partnerships for action involve two or more organisations teaming up with each other for mutual benefit. The parties can be within the same industry or from different sectors such as government, education, finance, not-for-profit and the community.

Collaboration with others enables organisations to overcome barriers and impediments to socially and environmentally beneficial change, acting as a force multiplier towards the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, theĀ (SDG)s.

Examples of successful partnerships for sustainability include the Responsible Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).
