Responsible Business Pledge

The Birmingham Business School has committed to a Responsible Business Pledge, promising to integrate Responsible Business practices into the heart of the school's aims and operations.

The pledge takes into account the school's effects on, and relationships with, society and planet, with the principles of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals at its heart:

  • We will create spaces for new ideas, especially those that increase the resilience of organisations, society and the environment.
  • We will challenge everyday practices, encourage responsible citizenship and promote fairer distribution of opportunities.
  • We will be open and transparent about what we value and measure; we will also value areas that cannot easily be measured, taking care of our people and culture.
  • We will develop diverse and inclusive teams throughout the School to encourage responsible leadership, education and research.
  • We will operate responsibly, taking account of our students, staff, wider community and the environment.
