Armando Dal Colletto, dean of Business School Sao Paulo (BSP) was elected to the board of the Brazil Chapter of the PRME - Principles for Responsible Management Education. Founded in 2007 and supported by the UN, the PRME initiative was developed to promote corporate responsibility and sustainability in business education.
The program consists of guidelines that govern the management of academic institutions, corporate universities and support organizations that share the vision of what it takes to educate responsibly. In 2010, BSP joined the growing number of business schools of Brazil to sign the PRME, thus underscoring its commitment to sustainability.
Given the commitment of Brazilian signatories of PRME, the country was authorized to establish the Brazil Chapter, becoming the first country to earn a chapter as others were grouped into regions. The PRME’s Brazil Chapter is focused on expanding the education movement focusing on cross sustainability at all levels of education in the country, with an emphasis on higher education.
The PRME’s Brazil Chapter is a center of excellence in education for sustainability in the country. The group is a leading partner for scientific production in the field, supports the exchange of students and professors, designs educational solutions together and dialogues with government agencies that formulate public policies in the education sector.
"BSP is aware of the importance of incorporating sustainability in business education. This commitment already permeates the curriculum of our courses, because we understand the size of our responsibility in the development of a sustainable world. Being a member of the board of PRME’s Brazil Chapter will enrich our focus," says Armando Dal Colletto, dean of BSP.
