Research 


United Nations Principles for Management Education

 

Our contribution to Greenleaf Publishers' PRME book on Sustainability: Redefining Success: Integrating Sustainability into Management Education 


Integrating the UN Global Compact into Management Education includes a chapter written by Sheila Carruthers in collaboration with her colleagues Lisa Maria Fox, Dr. Meenakshi Kakkar and Dr. Carla Davidson.  

Our chapter explores how Canadian business educational institutions have embedded the United Nations' Six Principles of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) in curriculum, academic research, and in on-campus operations.

 

To develop the content, we built on our previous research (see below) of sustainability practitioners across Canada to ascertain their attitudes towards the availability of training specific to Corporate Social Responsibility. Respondents
overwhelmingly indicated the need for more training in this area.


We conducted a survey of academics, professionals and business schools, to determine how the Ten Principles of UNGC, in concert with the principles of PRME, are being integrated with management training.
Our findings indicate there are many opportunities to better implement the UN-PRME in Canada's educational institutions and to provide more training on the topics of sustainability and social responsibility.

 

Exploring potential for Professional Training & Certification

CSR Strategies Inc. worked with a team of CSR leaders in Canada to explore the potential of establishing a CSR Certification for CSR and Sustainability practitioners. We concluded that as much as there is interest, the establishment of the International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP) certification offers a more holistic, global, professional accreditation.
