BI joins UN Global Compact4 October 2023
BI has joined the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.
UN Global Compact is recognised as the world's leading initiative driving sustainable and responsible business practices, with a membership exceeding 23,000 companies spread across 160 countries and organised through 69 local networks.
BI now joins 400 other Norwegian businesses and organisations in UN Global Compact Norway, that have all committed to taking responsible action to create a more sustainable and inclusive future.
“Joining the UNGC, in addition to our continued participation in its sister initiative UN PRME, reaffirms BI’s dedication to advance sustainability and responsible leadership practices in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. This broadens the opportunities for both students and faculty to network and engage with corporations that share our school’s goal of shaping people and business for a more sustainable future,” says Karen Spens, President of BI.
As members of UNGC Norway, BI’s students and faculty will now have access to various networking opportunities and competence-building events. Moreover, BI hopes participating in UNGC will further enhance the school’s responsible management education offerings, for both its full-time and executive students.
