First sustainability report

JIBS has been a signatory of the PRME initiative since 2013, which means developing education in questions regarding sustainability. The first PRME report has now been sent.

PRME is a global initiative, launched in 2007 by the UN. Indentifying management education as an important part in fostering responsible business behaviour and sustainable development in society, PRME helps to ensure a world where both business and society can flourish.

Six principles assist and inspire business schools to promote sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Over 500 business schools worldwide are signatories of the PRME. Six of these (including JIBS) are located in Sweden.

By adopting the six principles, JIBS has pledged to participate in a continuous process of developing education, research and dialogue with the business community in questions concerning CSR and sustainability.

Being a signatory of PRME implies that JIBS regularly will report on the progress in regards to implementing the six principles.
