Storskogen joins UN Global Compact

Corporate news

Storskogen Group AB (“Storskogen”) has joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative (“UN Global Compact”) — a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible business practices. With this announcement, Storskogen joins thousands of other companies globally committed to taking responsible business action to contribute to sustainable development.

The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour rights, environment, and anti-corruption, and to take action in support of the UN goals and issues embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 15,000 companies and 3,800 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and more than 69 Local Networks.

With an ambition to acquire and own small and medium-sized companies with a hundred-year perspective, a long-term and sustainable business approach has always been a key component of the Storskogen-model. Joining the Global Compact Initiative is a natural step for Storskogen according to co-founder and CEO Daniel Kaplan.

“Storskogen has built its sustainability framework based on the ten principles and we are proud to publicly commit to take action to support a sustainable development and future proof our companies,” says Daniel Kaplan, CEO.

Storskogen’s Head of Sustainability, Amelie Nordin, has led the initiative to join the UN Global Compact.

“I am looking forward to be part of the global and local network to exchange knowledge and know-how,” says Amelie Nordin.
