We are witnessing a process of standardisation of sustainability all over the world. While financial reporting continues to remain important a focus upon sustainability means that we need to take a much broader view of business activity. This involves all corporate communications but also concerns the developments which are taking place, in businesses, markets and manufacturing, while we strive to adapt to the needs of sustainability. This potentially involves adopting different approaches and standards. This is the area which we wish to discuss at this conference.
This conference is designed to act as a forum for debating and analysing contemporary issues in this broad area. It is intended to attract people from a wide variety of disciplines and geographic regions for an exchange of views.
The conference is intended to be interdisciplinary and welcomes contributions from anyone with a perspective on this crucial issue. Papers are welcome on any topic related to this broad issue, and suggested themes for papers include:
Although preference will be given to full papers, abstracts of 200‐500 words will also be considered.
All papers and abstracts should be sent by 30th June 2023 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
No more than 2 papers will be accepted from any author.
Final version of the accepted papers will be required by 20th of July 2023.
One of the distinguishing features of the conferences is SRRNet’s focus on subsequent publication of papers presented. SRRNet publishes at least one book of selected papers from each conference but also encourages every participant to publish their work. Advice will be given during the conference. Full details concerning other publishing opportunities for the papers presented at the conference will be provided during the conference.
