Responsible business


Business and management schools play a key role in shaping the skills of future business leaders, and can be powerful drivers of corporate sustainability. The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) provides a platform to raise the profile of sustainability in schools around the world and to equip today’s business students with the understanding and ability to deliver change tomorrow.

PRME was launched in 2007 by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon with a mission to inspire and champion responsible management education, research and thought leadership globally. Working through the Six Principles, PRME engages business schools to ensure they provide future business leaders with the skills needed to balance economic and sustainability goals, while drawing attention to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aligning academic institutions with the work of the U.N. Global Compact.

PRME encourages business schools and management-related higher education institutions to become advocates for an inclusive and sustainable global economy by incorporating values of business responsibility and sustainability into their activities, teaching, and research using the Six Principles.
