The Explorer is an initiative from the Norwegian government

The Explorer is part of Innovation Norway’s efforts to promote Norway as a sustainability pioneer. It is developed in close collaboration with leading Norwegian businesses, organisations and government bodies, and has a formal partnership with UN Global Compact.

Innovation Norway is the Norwegian government body responsible for value creation, innovation and growth for Norwegian start-ups and established companies.

As a country, Norway wants to take an active role in helping the world to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). All solutions on The Explorer are therefore linked to specific SDGs and none have a negative impact on people or the environment.

Solutions on The Explorer are offered across a spectrum of industries, from green shipping, clean energy and smart cities to health tech, edtech and food production. Since its inception in 2018, The Explorer has helped to connect the companies that offer these solutions with those who need them.

Here, you can watch the keynote "Innovation, Leadership and Hard Work" given by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, at the Green Leaders Conference at Greentech Festival in Berlin 25 May 2019, where The Explorer was launched for an international audience.
