Ecomagination 2020 Partnerships

Partnerships to Transform Tomorrow

GE Ecomagination is applying new digital industrial solutions to the world’s most pressing energy and water challenges. But we can’t do it alone.

GE is partnering with eight global, like-minded companies to co-create and commercialize transformative solutions to these challenges. With ground-breaking technology, new business models and innovative funding structures, we will lead a new era of industry and establish a network of problem solvers.

With our collective scale and reach we will have significant business and environmental impact and inspire others to take action.

“Our goal is to create a network effect. We want to inspire more companies to work together and tackle the world’s greatest resource problems. This is about co-development of solutions that can be scaled globally. Global water and energy challenges require immediate action and the business community isn’t going to wait.”
Deb Frodl, Ecomagination’s Global Executive Director
