SIP Recognitions and PRME Pioneers Announced

24 July 2017 | New York, USA — Nine recognitions for excellence in Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) reporting were announced during a high-level gathering of United Nations officials, academic deans, business executives, faculty, students, and other stakeholders. 

Held on the first evening of the 2017 Global Forum for Responsible Management Education — 10 Years of PRME, the special reception honored nine schools for their high-quality SIP Reports.

The recognized institutions, listed below by category, were selected by a peer review group under the guidance of Giselle Weybrecht, author, Special Advisor to PRME and expert in sustainable business education. SIP Recognitions have become a tradition of each PRME Global Forum, and are intended to spotlight significant achievements in reporting progress against the Six Principles at higher education signatories to the Principles for Responsible Management Education. 

First Time Reporters

Non-First Time Reporters

Reporting on the SDGs

In order to qualify, reports must have been submitted between March 1, 2015 and April 20th 2017. The Recognition is only open to Advanced Signatories who submitted their report on time. 

All eligible reports must also fulfil the SIP policy requirements that include:

  • A letter signed by the highest executive of the organisation
  • A description of practical actions during past 24 months
  • An assessment of outcomes
  • An overview of specific objectives for the next 24 months

Over 475 reports were submitted during the eligible period. Of these 117 were deemed eligible. After further analysis by the Secretariat, 35 were selected for peer review. The peer reviewers - members of the PRME Advisory Committee - further analysed the reports and provided their recommendations. The Secretariat took these into consideration and selected 3 schools in each category to receive the Recognitions. The schools represent a range of different approaches.

In addition to the SIP Recognitions, a select group of PRME Pioneers were announced at the reception. 19 individuals who have been key drivers of PRME’s growth and engagement during its ten year history were identified and received a special recognition.
