PRME Principle 5 and 6: Partnerships and Dialogue
Principle 5: We will interact with managers of business
corporations to extend our knowledge of their challenges in
meeting social and environmental responsibilities and to explore
jointly effective approaches to meeting these challenges. Principle 6: We will facilitate and support dialogue and debate
among educators, students, business, government, consumers,
media, civil society organizations and other interested groups
and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social
responsibility and sustainability.
SSE was started more than 100 years ago by the Swedish business community and thus has had strong ties to the private sector ever since. Corporate stakeholders as well as NGOs and public organizations play a significant role in SSE education, in terms of guest lectures, case studies or to support applied student projects. Besides various case-specific partnerships in education and research (principle 3 and 4), SSE frequently arranges public events, research seminars and interacts with important media to contribute with expertise to the public debate and respond to the increased demand for sustainability knowledge and CSR strategies.
"We want to be a meeting point for actors from different sectors and fields, researchers, students, policymakers and decision makers, for exchanging knowledge, thoughts and ideas. This type of exchange is crucial for Sweden’s future competitiveness,” says SSE President Lars Strannegård.
