Overview

Founded in 2002, the Global Compact Nordic Network (GCNN) is comprised of business signatories of the UN Global Compact from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Finland and Greenland. The vision of the GCNN is to work towards a sustainable and inclusive global economy, delivering lasting benefits to people, communities and markets in line with the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles. The GCNN is a business-driven network that serves as a leading learning and knowledge-sharing forum to promote the Ten Principles and corporate responsibility and sustainability.

The network administration is handled by a focal point appointed for a two-year term by the Steering Committee. The Steering Committee is comprised of one to two business representatives from each Nordic country as well as national coordinators. 

Objectives: The main objective of the GCNN is to provide a relevant learning platform and forum for Nordic organizations to exchange experiences and find inspiration for contributing to a sustainable future. Another important GCNN goal is the promotion of the UN Global Compact through facilitating collective action and policy dialogue. GCNN encourages companies to engage at the local level and supports implementation of the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles while strengthening their relationships with other Nordic signatories.
