Achievement of Commitment

A step towards a greener and more sustainable business school regarding organisation and administration will be taken in 2012 and forward as part of the project Sustainable Campus. The aim of this project is to change the service and administration of the institution into more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.

How this will be achieved

Business and Social Sciences is a member of PRME ? a global UN-sponsored network consisting of business schools and universities, all committed to integrate a number of principles of sustainability and social responsibility into their research and education. The membership aims at assuring the quality of our work with sustainability and to provide transparency and constant development.

Business and Social Sciences has also subscribed to the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, which is the world?s largest network for companies and organisations with focus on corporate social responsibility. The crux of the Global Compact are ten principles based on UN and ILO?s international conventions on human and labour rights, the Rio declaration on environmental protection and development and the UN convention on anti-corruption.
