DOING BUSINESS RESPONSIBLY: WHEN CORPORATIONS BECOME CITIZENS
In June 2012, the United Nations hosted the “Rio+20” global sustainable development summit in Rio de Janeiro, engaging more than 50,000 government officials, business leaders and representatives to promote renewed perseverance concerning sustainable development and the need for tangible and liable steps to achieve this goal.
The importance of the 2nd PRME MENA Regional Forum (PRME being an active organizer of the “Rio+20 summit”) is amplified by the growing tendency towards adopting corporate citizenship, social performance and sustainable responsible business principles, with an attempt to increase the positive impact that business schools, management-related academic institutions and companies have on their various stakeholders and Society at large.
This forum mainly aims at endorsing the notion of responsible business and the importance of adopting PRME in the MENA region, as per the recommendations of the 1st Regional Forum at the American University in Cairo in 2011. An aim of the Forum is to also agree on the objectives of the PRME regional chapter for the MENA region.
