About SVN

A network for long term sustainability

Social Venture Network, SVN, is an international network that works for long-term sustainability in business and operations. The members are companies and organizations that work locally in each country with issues of good ethics, environmental considerations and social responsibility.

The organization is financially, politically and religiously independent. The activities are financed through membership fees and by members, for example, hosting various events. The host company thus gets an opportunity to showcase its own business.

Many members of SVN find new collaborations through the network. Here are companies and organizations in widely differing industries and plenty of examples of entrepreneurs who have built up completely new levels of partners and suppliers; where everyone shares the same values.
