The Global Compact

Orkla joined the UN Global Compact in 2005.

The commitment to Global Compact means that Orkla is one of more than 8,000 companies and organisations that is committed to promoting Global Compact’s Ten Principles on human and workers’ rights, the environment and anti-corruption efforts. Orkla is a member of Global Compact’s Nordic network, for learning and sharing of experience.

Supported by the CEO

The Global Compact Ten Principles have been useful in guiding the development of Orkla’s own Corporate Responsibility guidelines, says President & CEO of Orkla, Peter A. Ruzicka.

Participation in the Global Compact obliges Orkla to make annual status reports. Orkla uses the Sustainability Report to document the Group's efforts in these areas.
