In its endeavor to realize the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) has produced a special publication, “CKGSB 2022 ESG and Social Innovation Report: Our Innovative Path towards Sustainable Development”. The report showcases CKGSB’s innovative programs, original research, hands-on projects, interdisciplinary partnerships and global dialogues on the School’s environmental, social and governance efforts and impact.

Featuring ESG-related courses among our degree and non-degree programs, social innovation projects led by our school’s staff, students and alumni, and unique insights from our faculty’s research on sustainable development, the report highlights representative cases from the past two years in the CKGSB’s social responsibility path.

Emphasizing the social role of a business school like CKGSB, Founding Dean Xiang Bing writes in the report, “In this era of tectonic changes, business schools have an unshakable responsibility in helping individuals and institutions (companies and NGOs) to better navigate through these turbulent times, and to make the world a better place both economically and socially.”

This report has also been submitted to the United Nations’ Responsible Management Education (PRME), to which CKGSB has been a proud signatory since November 24, 2008. PRME is a United Nations-supported initiative founded in 2007, created as a platform to raise the profile of sustainability in schools around the world, and to equip today’s business students with an understanding and ability to make changes in the world.
