PRME Chapter Nordic

PRME Chapter Nordic meeting in Copenhagen, CBS, August 2023
PRME Chapter Nordic meeting in Copenhagen, CBS, August 2023

The PRME Nordic Chapter consists of PRME signatories from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

Background

The first informal meeting of this group was held at Copenhagen Business School (Denmark) in June 2013 during the Sustainability in a Scandinavian Context Conference. In September 2013, a second meeting for the PRME Chapter Nordic was held alongside the 2013 PRME Summit – 5th Annual Assembly in Bled, Slovenia. Following these two meetings, the PRME Chapter Nordic became established on 13 September 2014, after formalising a Memorandum of Understanding between the Chapter and the PRME Secretariat.

Chapter mission

The PRME Chapter Nordic has the aim to build a network based on further promoting the “cooperative advantage” of the Nordic business context and has determined the following next steps and commitments:

  • To help translate and implement PRME in the local context
  • To leverage the strength of the existing UN Global Compact Nordic Network and to build a communication forum where the members of the network can share information on their projects
  • To help and inspire other Nordic business and management schools to sign up for PRME.

Strategic Goals

Goal: Expand carbon literacy. Theoretical framing. Add module on biodiversity (and potentially later, on water). This allows for tools to strengthen the implementation of the PRME SDG Blueprint

Goal: Advance RME regulatory mapping in the Nordics and advance measurement/qualitative models to understand embedding of RME. Review against the SDG blueprint

Goal: Nordic advancement of WIL, case studies and research in collaboration with UNGC and other stakeholders

Goal: Nordic RME / sustainability textbook – outcome of Ph.D. course and continuation of Nordic sustainability Ph.D. Course

Goal: Strengthen research collaborations on RME


Current main areas of collaboration

  • Currently communicating with our UNGC national representatives to enhance collaboration. Several Nordic PRME members have initiated a dialogue with their national UNGC representatives.
  • Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), Initiative by BI Norway, a collaboration to build RME related courses is under development. More partners would be welcome.
  • PhD Doctoral course, a former collaboration to co-design a RME PhD doctoral course. The latest PhD course was headed by Hanken School of Economics.
  • Quarterly online meetings will now invite Nordic members to share about their own School’s transition and how they are transforming their education.
