News Introducing the Refreshed Principles of Responsible Management Education

Introducing the Refreshed Principles of Responsible Management Education

PRME is proud to announce the refreshed Principles of Responsible Management Education. Since the Principles for Responsible Management Education launched in 2007, the world has changed significantly and the need for accelerated action on sustainable development has never been greater. The Six Principles were refreshed to be more declarative and assertive to motivate action in addition to inspiring change. Additionally, a seventh Principle, ‘Practice’, was added to speak to Signatories’ institutional operations and the commitment to continuous learning through the application of responsible and accountable practices in their own operations.

Our principles-based community has unitedly navigated through this fast-paced changing world, dealing with new and more complex challenges and contributing to cutting-edge solutions for the betterment of society and the planet. Responsible management education has moved to the spotlight of global debates as a critical factor in advancing sustainable development holistically due to its influence on businesses of today and tomorrow.

As these changes have brought PRME’s role within business schools into greater focus, PRME has been accelerating its action on sustainable development. A strategic review in 2019 highlighted the need to review the Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) Reporting process, which had yet to reach its full potential of sharing value between members. Thus the PRME SIP Impact Sub-Committee was established by the PRME Board in 2020 to review the SIP reporting system, and proposed changes not only to SIP reporting, but also recommended that the Principles be ‘refreshed’ to align with the proposed changes to the SIP process and changing business landscape. Following these recommendations, the PRME Board established the PRME Principles Task Force (PPTF) in October 2022 to finalize the process of refreshing PRME’s Principles.

The PPTF underwent the refresh process throughout 2023, including several global consultations with PRME Chapters, Working Groups, Champions, students, UN Global Compact participants, key stakeholders in the responsible management ecosystem, and PRME’s founding partners. As a result, PRME has introduced Seven refreshed Principles. PRME looks forward to applying these action-oriented Principles to advance the implementation of the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and sustainable development in academic institutions around the world.

The Seven Principles will be directly tied to the upcoming SIP 2.0 Reporting process, with a renewed SIP logic for Signatory members that incorporates relevant schemata for sustainability reporting. Join our upcoming webinar on ‘How to Answer the SIP 2.0 Questionnaire’ to learn how the SIP 2.0 reporting is mapped against the refreshed Principles.

Explore the refreshed Seven Principles and read more about the entire process in the PRME Principles Refresh Final Report.


This refresh process would not have been possible without the leadership of the PPTF. We thank the committee for their time, expertise, and collaboration.

The refreshed Principles are a reflection of the community, who were integral in shaping them through our global consultations. We are grateful to the multitude of people, both named below and unnamed, for their support and participation in surveys, focus groups, and interviews.
