Welcome to the Nordic Global Compact Meeting 2022!

The Swedish Local Network invites you to the Nordic Global Compact Meeting, taking place in Gothenburg, Sweden, on October 26-27. Register today for the opportunity to increase your knowledge, discover new collaborations, and get inspired under the theme "Just Transition and the Role of Business".

The overall theme of the conference is "just transition" with a focus on human rights and climate. Throughout the conference, we will highlight in different ways on what companies can do to ensure that people are in focus - also in their climate work. To ensure a just transition, where both social, environmental and economic requirements are met, cooperation between different actors is crucial. No company can solve the many crises we are currently facing on its own. Therefore, we will have a special focus on enabling collaboration throughout the conference. We at the Nordic Global Compact networks are the natural meeting places to exchange experiences and get support for strategic sustainability work. During this conference, we want to give our members a helping hand to be able to network and open for potential collaborations across borders. During the two-day conference, you will therefore have the opportunity to share experiences with peers and brainstorm solutions around common challenges.

Day 1: October 26, 13.00 - 16.00
This year on July 28, the United Nations General Assembly declared that a good environment is a human right. Get inspired and receive some food for thought by leading key-note speakers on human rights and climate.

Day 2: October 27, 8.30 - 16.30
How a fair transition can become reality
· How can the fossil-free - and fair - electrification of transports be achieved? Listen to panel discussions between company representatives from the transport and energy sectors.
· Children's rights and business, how are they connected? The Children's Rights Business Principles, which were launched by the UN Global Compact, UNICEF and Save the Children, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. Despite progress, children's rights are not at the heart of responsible business, so this part of the conference will highlight how businesses must contribute to the principles of children's rights and to the just transition that is crucial, both for children today and for generations to come.
· How can sustainable investments secure human rights, and how can companies prepare for upcoming legal and reporting requirements linked to climate and human rights? Listen to subject experts and discuss experiences with other Global Compact participants.

The conference will be held in English and in a hybrid format. The entire programme will be available for physical attendance, and a few parts of the programme will be streamed digitally for those who cannot join in Gothenburg. 

Registration for the conference is now open and information about the conference program is being updated continuously. Don't miss the chance to attend - register today!
