The PRiME initiative is the first organised relationship between the United Nations and management-related academic institutions, business schools, and universities. Launched at the 2007 UN Global Compact Leaders Summit in Geneva (initiated by Kofi Anan - UN prime minister), the Six Principles constitute an engagement framework for academic institutions to advance corporate sustainability and social responsibility through the incorporation of universal values into curricula and research.
To date, over 600 leading business schools and management-related academic institutions from more than 80 countries across the world are signatories of PRiME. Even more, over one third of the Financial Times' top 100 business schools participate in PRiME.
