The United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) is the world's largest enterprise sustainable development alliance directly under the UN. It was proposed by former Secretary-General Annan and officially established in 2000. To advance the implementation of the Global Compact, the United Nations has established the Global Compact Office and established a working team with the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the International Labour Organization, the United Nations Environment Programme, the United Nations Development Programme and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization. To date, UNGC members have spread to 170 countries around the world, and more than 12,000 organizations (9000 for-profit organizations and 4,000 non-profit organizations) have joined the UN Global Compact. UNGC's services include education, environment, justice and finance, including HP, HSBC, China Association of Listed Companies, and more than 100 universities around the world.

In order to ensure that students are built to meet the needs of the global economy, the Telfort Education Group joined the UNGC in August 2016 to encourage employees and students to actively participate in the alliance activities, and to integrate the content and case of the contract into the teaching.

After more than a year of hard work by the group's teachers and students, in January 2018, "Telfort Business Institute" was officially certified as a member by the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (UN PRME).

PRME (Principles for Responsible Management Education) was established at the UN Global Compact Leadership Summit in 2007. It is the largest organizational link between the United Nations and global education. PRME is composed of 60 deans, university presidents and official representatives under the coordination of the UN Global Compact (UNGC) and the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

PRME encourages universities and colleges to promote responsible management education worldwide by adopting innovative strategies.

PRME actively promotes institutional change, inspiring and encouraging higher academic institutions to integrate corporate responsibility and sustainable development into their curriculum, therefore to foster business leaders who can successfully address the complex challenges of business and society and to improve student’s research abilities and leadership.
