PRME offers its Six Principles to guide management-related higher education institutions in achieving the SDGs and advancing the 2030 Agenda. The PRME campaign “Signatories Taking Action” enables Signatories to share how they are adapting to the current pandemic and offers the wider PRME community an opportunity to learn from other universities around the world about their challenges and solutions during this unprecedented time.

The PRME Six Principles:
Purpose: 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: We will incorporate into our academic activities, curricula, and organisational practices the values of global social responsibility as portrayed in international initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact.
Method: We will create educational frameworks, materials, processes and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.
Research: 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: 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: We will facilitate and support dialog and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, civil society organisations and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability. Participating business and management schools, called Signatories, voluntarily sign up to align their practices with PRME, ensuring that their systems engage sustainability entirely.
