Sharing Information on Progress (2020)
Period Covered: Jan 2018 to Jan 2020
This is the first SIP report prepared by Trinity Business School. It covers the period January 2018-January 2020. It presents a baseline position for the School and sets out goals under each of the seven PRME principle domains.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Our undergraduate, MSc and MBA programmes have a Business and Society 'stream' that runs through each of the degree programmes and includes course modules in Business Ethics, CSR/Business and Society, Social Entrepreneurship, Social Innovation and Social Impact, and Social Investment.
Sustainability is integrated into all of the courses taught through the Business and Society Stream.
Our Centre for Social Innovation (Formal launch - November 2018) is engaged in research, education, engagement, innovation and impact. In the education domain, we develop course curricula for and with our business school colleagues and a range of 'social partners' including the Trinity Access Programme and business schools in developing contexts.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Our €12m EU Commission funded H2020 Innovation Action 'Connecting Nature' links cities, social and commercial funders and sustainability innovators in the greening of cities. The 'nature based solutions' developed by social innovators are piloted within and front runner cities, developed in fast follower cities, and funded by a range of funders, from those looking purely for philanthropic engagement with sustainability projects through to commercial funders investing in companies that will generate a financial return. We are in Year One of this five year project.
Within our Centre for Social Innovation, which acts as an umbrella for colleagues from across the Business School who have sustainability research projects, colleagues with research interests in Governance & Regulation, Philanthropy, CSR and Business Ethics, Social Enterprise/Hybrid organisations, Social Finance and Investment and Complex Systems / Systemic Change
