Trusted Value Chains

Globalization 2.0

While this period of change and dislocation presents danger and insecurity, it also presents an opportunity to preserve many of the advantages created by Globalization 1.0 while addressing its most painful deficiencies. Through trusted value chains, Globalization 2.0 will deliver a more resilient, secure, inclusive, and sustainable globalization than the unbridled globalization of the last 75 years.

Altana Values

A Vision of Better Global Commerce

  • We embrace reality as we work to change it.

    We seek, surface, and communicate reality with our stakeholders, while working relentlessly to pull reality to our vision. Embracing this tension enables learning and adaptation; ignoring it results in failure. We constructively address the uncomfortable truths, and have the hard conversations, welcoming learning as necessary for growth.

  • We focus on value creation, not value capture.

    We develop positive-sum relationships with our customers, our partners, and our teammates. We convene and align stakeholders around meaningful, valuable opportunities, and always play the long game. We share credit, we partner well, and we focus on the mission.

  • We go on offense.

    We have the courage to imagine and build transformative, world-scale solutions. Incrementalism will not fix globalization. We value “first principles” thinking and “ownership” behaviors over process and hierarchy. We have a bias towards action, even amidst uncertainty.

  • We foster diversity and embrace differences.

    We believe that a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives is essential to building a global, multi-stakeholder platform.
