The pace of change, and magnitude of risks, facing business is unprecedented. In response, the United Nations put forth the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework for unified action towards ecological sustainability and shared prosperity.
Business leaders are thus called upon to protect the earth’s biosphere, which supports all of life, and to promote a type of prosperity that is just, equitable, and inclusive, and which improves the human condition.
The United Nations PRME initiative is a framework to promote this sense of responsibility, urgency, and ethic amongst future business leaders – our students. At the Gerald Schwartz School of Business, PRME honors who we are – a business school grounded in the values of service and social responsibility, within a university for which social justice, community engagement, active citizenship, and a global sense of responsibility are hallmarks of our history and core to our DNA.
