The PRME Commons is a novel and multi-level technological platform that aims to facilitate global knowledge exchange among business schools, focusing on responsible leadership and sustainable practices. The platform seeks to transition from traditional economic shareholder approaches to more inclusive stakeholder models, with societal betterment as the ultimate goal.
The PRME Commons has six objectives spread across three layers. In the first layer, it serves as a self-reporting database for PRME Signatories to track their progress and share evidence of their evolution from first to second-generation responsible management education through the PRME Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) Reporting. The second layer focuses on resource sharing, expanding the repository to include data from beyond PRME Signatories and forming alliances with data providers. This layer aims to curate content and develop narratives and metrics of progress.
The third layer emphasizes advancing systemic change in responsible management and education on a global scale. It provides institutional profiles of PRME signatories and showcases their efforts and progress. Additionally, it offers community statistics and qualitative narrative data to monitor and promote responsible management practices.
The PRME Commons will be live in 2024.
Through PRME Commons, Signatory Members are enabled to self-evaluate their progress in implementing the Principles, communicate their sustainability journey, and connect with other Signatories.
