“Reporting the SDG Impacts of Global Business Schools”
The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 2030 Agenda are global “plans of action for people, planet and prosperity.” SDGs include ending poverty, protecting the planet, ensuring peace, fostering prosperity, promoting innovation, addressing climate change, fostering health and well-being, and eradicating economic and gender inequality among other priorities. Increasingly, business schools are strategically engaging the SDGs and PRME is leading the way with its Vision 2030: “Realising the Sustainable Development Goals through responsible management Education.” Also, AACSB International’s vision is “to transform business education for global prosperity. Business and business schools are a force for good, contributing to the world’s economy and to society…” and AACSB’s mission: “As a result, business education will have a positive impact on business and society − and AACSB will amplify that impact. In achieving its mission and vision, AACSB will emphasize and model the following values: Quality, Inclusion & Diversity, a Global Mindset, Ethics, Social Responsibility, and Community.”
The SDG Dashboard is a new reporting, visualization, and data analytics tool for PRME and other global business schools to showcase their contributions toward advancing the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development goals (SDGs). Aligned with the PRME Principles, the SDG Dashboard shares business schools’ SDG-related best practices in Teaching, Research, Partnerships, Dialogue, and Organisational Practices. The purpose of the SDG Dashboard is to provide a shareable, robust, and useful resource for business schools to enhance their impact on fulfilling the SDGs.
