Every year the School publishes its Annual Report following the standards of the Global Compact (ESIC is also a member of Global Compact since 2010), which sets out the ten principles in the field of human rights, work, the environment and the fight against corruption. The Annual Report by ESIC is an institutional reference document for our stakeholders, and it contains the most complete data on its management in 2019 demonstrating the Strategic Plan and transparency ESIC Business & Marketing School.

At the same time, ESIC, from the moment it signed the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) on 25 November 2010, has responded to the biannual Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) report. The mission of the PRME is to inspire and promote responsible management education, research and leadership thinking worldwide. ESIC also publishes its PRME Corporate Responsibility Report every second year (see link: Memoria de Responsabilidad Social PRME 2019) following the 6 principles of the PRME, with the aim of transforming business and management education and creating responsible leaders for the future.
