At Danske Bank Group, we try to promote social and environmental responsibility across our business activities. We do so in order to manage our own risk efficiently and because we think it is the right thing to do. It also helps us meet the ten principles of corporate responsibility in the UN Global Compact.

We are active in various networks and take part in initiatives to find solutions to global challenges.

Overview of partnership

  • In 2007, we joined the UN Global Compact, which is the world's most comprehensive corporate responsibility initiative. The Global Compact is a multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together all relevant stakeholders such as governments, the private sector, the labour market and civil society to promote universal principles in the areas of human rights, employee rights, the environment and anti-corruption.

    By joining the Global Compact, we show our commitment and take action on the Global Compact's ten principles in our policies and business operations.

    The Global Compact Nordic Network

    We take part in the Global Compact Nordic Network, which is a regional network working within the global framework. The objectives of the Nordic Network are to:

    • promote the Global Compact
    • create a knowledge-sharing forum for Nordic Global Compact members
    • establish good practices
    • inspire and help other Nordic companies implement the ten principles

    The Global Compact Nordic Network has more than 110 members. It is open to companies and business associations in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

  • The Principles for Responsible Banking are a UN-based framework for ensuring that banks’ strategy and practice align with the vision that society has set out for its future in the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement. For Danske Bank, this involves embedding sustainability across all business areas – including our supply chain management. We are committed to working responsibly with our customers, suppliers and partners to encourage sustainable practices and enable economic activities that create shared prosperity for current and future generations.
