In January 2015 the GCNS has entered into a cooperation agreement with the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), in representation of the Federal administration. The resulting public-private partnership includes, in addition to SDC, the State Secretariat of Economic Affairs (SECO) as well as the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (EDA). The objective of this partnership is to revitalize the GCNS by “creating and operating a productive multi-stakeholder platform on the global responsibility of the Swiss private sector, resulting in an effective dialogue between the private sector (including both SMEs and large companies), the civil society, the government and other organizations on issues that are directly related to the Global Compact’s principles”.

Under the Partnership Agreement with the SDC a Programme Committee has been created to manage the partnership. The Committee is constituted by 3 members of the GCNS Board and 3 members from the federal administration.
