Aware of the need for business schools to expand beyond their initial fields of activity, our school aims to lead the way by encouraging a collaborative evolution. Our ambition is to provide economic and social solutions to real challenges that will impact future generations.
Future generations can no longer be educated without including awareness about social and environmental responsibilities. Our commitment to this vision is true and determined. In order to promote principles of social and global responsibility, GEM has committed since 2008 to following the UN Global Compact and the PRME (Principles for Responsible Management Education). Today, we are going a step further thanks to our Zero Waste program and our ambitious goal to become the first zero-waste business school in Europe by 2020.
In line with this position, we have defined five fundamental causes that align with UN goals for sustainable development. We have united all of our partners and actors to work collectively on these causes in support of society:
- Ethics and integrity of internal stakeholders
- Gender equality
- Access to education for all
- Economic peace
- Climate change
GEM invites its stakeholders to commit to a real ecological, economic and societal transformation by signing the GEM Manifesto for a Sustainable Future, aligning with GEM’s 2020-2025 strategic plan built on the five pillars.
