Period Covered: Jan 2013 to Dec 2015
XLRI’s initiatives in this context can broadly be categorized into three distinct yet inter-connected thrust areas viz. (a) Institutional initiatives (b) Academic initiatives and (c) Research initiatives. These three thrust areas, in turn, broadly capture the essence of the PRME’s six principles viz. Purpose; Values; Method; Research; Partnership; and Dialogue.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
As one of the largest and most successful business schools in India, XLRI is committed to influencing its students through inspirational learning and teaching, and business engagement. XLRI recognizes that ethics, social responsibility and sustainability are of concern for businesses locally, nationally and internationally and their importance for the global economy is likely to increase into the future. As managers/leaders of the future, XLRI students would be required to directly address, and make decisions regarding societal challenges in these areas. In line with XLRI’s vision of preparing students with “An abiding commitment to improving the quality of the life in organizations and society”, our students would be equipped with the relevant knowledge and understanding of the current and future implications of ethics and sustainable development for business. In tune with our vision and commitment to sustainability, our academic programs equip our students to become responsible business leaders. XLRI also recognizes that multi-disciplinary approaches are required to address the complex inter-linkages among economy, society and environment. XLRI’s curriculum offers core (mandatory) and elective courses that build the capabilities of its students on business ethics, sustainable development, corporate governance etc.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
XLRI actively engages in conceptual and empirical research that advances our understanding about the role, dynamics and impact of business enterprises in the creation of sustainable social, environmental and economic value.
XLRI recognizes that capacity building is an important element that will further expand the organizational capabilities to achieve embedded sustainability, corporate citizenship and ethical behavior. Accordingly, XLRI has been proactively promoting UNGC-PRME agenda across range of capacity building/management development activities that it undertakes for government, NGO and corporate sectors.
