Description/achievement of initiative
Bled School of Management is deeply committed to developing leaders for a better world and believes in ethical and socially responsible leadership which can be promoted through learning from art, science, sport and other professions, drawing parallels around them and making people reflect. Management of social, environmental, and ethical risks and opportunities has been a required element of our Executive MBA programs for several years (IEDC has designed an ethics component into all its longer management programs more than twenty years ago and as an additional innovation, sustainable development was added to the curriculum in 2008). Since 2007, IEDC has been also the headquarters of the UN Global Compact Slovenia, the Slovenian chapter in the UN Global Compact.
Within the scope of Coca-Cola Chair agreement, IEDC-Bled School of Management plans to continue efforts in all dimensions aimed at promoting the ideals of sustainable development globally. We are delighted to have Coca-Cola‟s support in this domain, and hope to make significant contribution to Coca-Cola brand and identity as a leader of sustainable innovation. Our future plans include:- Continued research, case writing, and teaching;- Intensified support for global sustainability initiatives;- Development of deeper relationship with the Coca-Cola Company and identifying new opportunities for mutual benefit and collaboration.
