Responsibility at CBS
CBS is a pioneer in embedding UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and is currently reviewing everything we do through this lens. The ambition is to make responsible management education an integral part of our core activities both in research and education while leading by example through our own organisational practices in delivering our services.
The PRME are inspired by internationally accepted values such as the principles of the United Nations Global Compact. They seek to establish a process of continuous improvement among institutions of management education in order to develop a new generation of business leaders capable of managing the complex challenges faced by business and society in the 21st century. As an institution of higher education involved in the development of current and future managers CBS declares its willingness to progress in the implementation, within its institution, of the following principles.
Purpose - Principle 1:
We will develop the capabilities of students to be future generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy
Values - Principle 2:
We will incorporate into our academic activities and curricula the values of global social responsibility as portrayed in international initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact.
Method - Principle 3:
We will create educational frameworks, materials, processes and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.
Research - Principle 4:
We will engage in conceptual and empirical research that advances our understanding about the role, dynamics, and impact of corporations in the creation of sustainable social, environmental and economic value.
Partnership - Principle 5:
We will interact with managers of business corporations to extend our knowledge of their challenges in meeting social and environmental responsibilities and to explore jointly effective approaches to meeting these challenges.
Dialogue - Principle 6:
We will facilitate and support dialog and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, civil society organizations and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.
