About the Nordic Network

The Global Compact Nordic Network is a local network under the umbrella of the United Nations Global Compact.

The purpose of the Network is to:

  •  Provide a learning forum for Nordic members of the Global Compact
  •  Promote the Global Compact
  •  Showcase good practice
  •  Inspire and assist other companies in implementing the ten principles


There are currently over 200 Nordic members of the Global Compact Nordic Network. To date, membership of the Nordic Network has been open for businesses and business associations from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden that are signatories to the Global Compact.

Starting from January 2012 the network was opened for all signatories of the Global Compact for a two year trial period. The Network decided June 2014 that the network should remain open for all Global Compact signatories, which includes business, NGOs, academia, and other signatories.
It is voluntary for signatories to the Global Compact to join the Nordic Network.

The annual membership fee is currently € 650 per year. This covers participation at the two regular network meetings that is held on an annual basis as well as travel costs for the participation of the Focal Point at the Annual Local Networks Forum. The Network has earlier decided that 1-2 persons  per company or member organization can attend each Network meeting. If there are more participants from same company / member organization, they are obliged to pay extra fee (200 €) for each Network meeting.

If your company wishes to become a member of the Global Compact Nordic Network, please contact the Focal Point or your local coordinator.
