Gratitude to Our Partners

Dear PRME Community,

In the midst of a busy fall season here in New York, the PRME Secretariat and I would like to take this month to recognize some of our partners. Our organization’s activities would not be possible without the valuable contributions of our sponsors and knowledge partners. So, I am pleased to share highlights of four ongoing partnerships that are building a better future with and for the PRME community.

Viva Idea

The VIVA Idea team has engaged the wider PRME community in strategy consultations over the course of the last two years in what has been referred to as the Strategic Action Coordination (SAC) Process. We have been fortunate to receive the generous pro-bono support of VIVA Idea to assist with the 2021-2022 PRME SAC Process. VIVA Idea is an organization solely dedicated to solving sustainability challenges through research, capacity building, and knowledge management. A comprehensive report on the outcomes of this process is forthcoming and together with the PRME Secretariat team and the Chapters, we will draw action items from the session and survey learnings.

LEGO Foundation

The LEGO Foundation empowers children to become creative, engaged, lifelong learners through play. The Foundation's longstanding work on playful learning is now being applied in a new context – to business school students as future leaders of society through the i5 Project. You can now read more about our partnership with the LEGO Foundation in this one-pager:

Economics of Mutuality Foundation

The Economics of Mutuality Foundation equips organizations to adopt a responsible operational approach based on mutual value creation with stakeholders rather than profit maximization for shareholders alone. It does this by generating a new purpose-centric value creation model with non-financial forms of capital – Social, Human, and Natural Capital – as building blocks; and aims to continue this work in collaboration with the PRME network. You can now read more about our upcoming partnership with the Economics of Mutuality Foundation in this one-pager:

Brand Industry

Our web development partner, Brand Industry, has also provided generous pro-bono support for our website maintenance and development needs. They are currently working on revitalizing many parts of our website by adding new functionality and ways to connect with others in the PRME community. You may have noticed the Search features and PRME Global Students pages, among others, have been revamped for a more streamlined user experience. Keep an eye out as they continue to help us transform the website and better showcase the work of the PRME community.

You can read more about our partnerships on PRME’s the Partners Page of our website. All thanks to the hard work of the dedicated team at Brand Industry!

Thank you all for contributing to this great work,

Mette Morsing

Global efforts are off-track to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.

As Governments and non-state actors converge at COP28, business education has a duty to develop responsible leaders who understand the key role the private sector plays in keeping the 1.5°C ambition alive and securing the transition to a net-zero future by 2050. PRME aims to offer a space for universi
