Sharing Information on Progress (2016)
Period Covered: Jan 2015 to Dec 2016
This Sharing Information on Progress Report (SIP) outlines the activities of the School of Business and Economics, the University and individual staff throughout 2015 and 2016 showing commitment to PRME. This 2016 report marks an important milestone with regard to our progress to date in meeting these principles by shifting our engagement from the MBA programme to the whole School of Business and Economics.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
We intend to build on our achievements to date to ensure that the Principles for Responsible Management Education permeate all aspects and activities of our School. Concern and respect for economic, social, environmental and cultural sustainability inform our teaching and research, our industry and community partnerships, as well as our internal operational policies and structures.
Developing a University and School policy on Sustainability is a key focus for the next 18-24 months.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
A number of our faculty are key researchers and contributors to knowledge in CSR. We are going to build on the skills and knowledge of these people to develop strategies and policy.
We will continue to work closely with business, government, third sector bodies and our Māori and Pacific communities to support enlightened governance and leadership of New Zealand commercial and social enterprises, encouraging them to be innovative and assisting them to be both successful and sustainable within a rapidly changing and sometimes volatile global environment.
