Moreover, EFMD has worked closely with the UNGC as a founding member in the development and formulations of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). In 2016, EFMD reaffirmed its support to the UNGC and its Ten Principles in the areas of Human Rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-Corruption through the Communication of Engagement.

    Responsible Research in Business and Management Network

    EFMD supports the dissemination of the White Paper on Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM), led by a group of renowned scholars. The White Paper, the Principles, and the Community present a vision of a future in which business schools and scholars worldwide have successfully transformed their research toward responsible science – defined as research that produces credible and reliable knowledge with either direct or indirect usefulness for addressing problems important to both business and society. EFMD has helped to design and maintains the community website which was launched in early 2017, and provides administrative and communication support to the network.
