In my native language, we use the verb for "work" + the infinitive marker to indicate that someone is making an effort/striving/endeavouring/trying to do something. To me, it seems that all these expressions (make an effort, strive, endeavour, try) have a very strong sense of 'doing one's best, but with a strong possibility of not succeeding', but I need a more neutral expression. So, now I'm wondering whether it is possible to use "work" in this sense in English too; more specifically, would the following examples be idiomatic, or is there another verb that would be a better fit?
In the following months, we will work to establish cooperation with X.
They will work to create a more tolerant workplace.
They promised to work to increase the number of sustainable options.
