Danish Government Encourages Companies to Join Global Compact

(New York, 11 June 2008) – The Danish Ministry for Economic and Business Affairs has introduced a thirty-item action plan for corporate social responsibility. The Action Plan aims to ensure that the financial growth of the Danish corporate sector goes hand-in-hand with social and environmental objectives. Focusing on internationally recognized principles for corporate responsibility, the Action Plan explicitly encourages Danish companies to join the UN Global Compact. It also urges Danish investors to support the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

The action plan has four key action areas:

  • Increasing business-driven social responsibility.
  • Promoting social responsibility through state activities.
  • Strengthening corporate climate responsibility.
  • Marketing Denmark for responsible growth.
