Secretary General, Jan EgelandWhy partner with Norwegian Refugee Council?

When companies partner with NRC, they make a big difference in the lives of some of the world's most vulnerable people: those forced to flee their homes.

This way, companies showcase their values while contributing to real change.

NRC's corporate partnerships are true exchanges of expertise. Our innovative collaborations create opportunities for the world's displaced people.

Together, we create hope.

There is no better investment.
NRC Secretary General, Jan Egeland

A principled organisation

NRC is a strongly principled organisation. We believe in transparency and hold ourselves accountable to our donors, partners, staff and the displaced people we serve. To maintain the integrity of our work, we adhere to these principles:

Non-discrimination and respect for human dignity:
We are dedicated to providing support for the most vulnerable – regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion, political views or disabilities.

We ensure that the details on how we work, and where are funds go, are accessible and visible. Our information aligns with the standards of the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI). Read more about our commitment to accountability.

Risk management:
Corruption, theft and mismanagement are common in many of the countries where we operate. NRC has robust anti-corruption and risk management systems. We hold our partners to the same high standards.

More than 90 per cent of NRC's costs are used in the crisis-affected countries where we operate. Our current administrative costs average between 9 and 10 per cent of our global budget. Read more about our finances.

Monitoring and evaluation:
We routinely reflect on our experiences and projects in the field, critically assessing our projects at the field and management levels.

At NRC, we take pride in the principles of our humanitarian action. Read our Ethical Guidelines on corporate partnerships.
