The KPMG Nordic Ethics and Compliance survey in 2022 included responses from 49 Nordic companies. Most of the respondents agreed that their clients and bank connections has expressed increasing expectations for how the company manages ethics/ESG risks.

The current compliance landscape is still characterised by increasing legal and regulatory complexity and international enforcement, as well as growing expectations from stakeholders and society at large as to responsible business conduct and sustainable operations.

Increased external expectations also mean additional requirements in terms of managing compliance systems, efficiency, digital tools, resource allocation, and competence. In this year’s survey we will continue to assess where Nordic companies are on their ethics and compliance journey and analyse trends. It also explores compliance readiness for ESG-related regulations and challenges introduced by the coming regulations.
