WDO seeks out partnerships with design-effective companies that are committed to innovation through design and recognize the importance of design for good business and the power of responsible behaviour for brand enhancement; partners that will enrich the goals of our programmes and contribute knowledge and expertise to community development and the improvement of quality of life. As part of the World Design Partner® Programme (WDPP), we provide these companies with opportunities to position themselves as leaders in design and innovation, showcase their brand in markets around the world, align with other well-established brands and contribute to community building initiatives. We also develop strategic alliances with international media, as well as a number of organizations and development agencies that work in concert to demonstrate the impact of design in the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
We thank the following organizations for supporting this work and sharing our vision of designing a better world through industrial design driven innovation.
