Orkla ASA and the Nobel Peace Center have entered into a partnership contract for a further three years. This contract involves payments from Orkla for Peace Center activities of a total of NOK 9 million.
”Orkla has been a committed, secure support to us since 2007. The fact that they are renewing this contract is very gratifying. This is both a major declaration of confidence in and a recognition of the work we do. This partnership gives us the opportunity to continue developing unique exhibitions and public activities,” says Bente Erichsen, Director of the Nobel Peace Center, in a joint press release.
”We want to continue helping the Peace Center to ensure it has plenty to offer to a wide audience. The name of Alfred Nobel and his Peace Prize are linked with values we need in the world. The Nobel Peace Center has a strong, international name, and Orkla has every reason to be proud of the arrangement and activities implemented by the centre,” says Hilde Myrberg, Executive Vice President at Orkla.
The Nobel Peace Center in Oslo opened five years ago and is renowned for its unique exhibitions and modern technology. The centre displays Peace Prize winners and their work, the life of Alfred Nobel and various topics relating to war, peace and conflict resolution. A varied range of things offered for both adults and children have made the Nobel Peace Center one of the most popular attractions in Oslo, and it also has a good reputation abroad.
Orkla is one of the largest listed companies in Norway and operates in the branded consumer goods, aluminium solutions, materials, renewable energy and financial investment sectors. The group has a turnover of NOK 56 billion and 30,000 employees in more than 40 countries.
