Standard-setting of sustainability reporting workshop

About the Workshop

The School's El Shaarina Centre for Ethical Finance, Accountability and Governance are delighted to be jointly hosting a virtual workshop on Standard-Setting of Sustainability Reporting, open to academics, accounting standard setters and regulators, and other members of the accounting profession. 

Recently, there has been an intensifying discourse and significant developments on the regulatory work needed to converge and consolidate reporting frameworks for non-financial reporting. Against this backdrop, the Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal (SAMPJ) has invited submissions for a special issue on this topic.

The SAMPJ, the Adam Smith Observatory of Corporate Reporting Practices (Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow), the Social and Environmental Sustainability in Organisations Research Group (Swinburne University of Technology) and the Centre are hosting this online workshop, where successful submissions that have strong potential to demonstrate research impact by contributing to public policy developments will be presented.
