Call for Abstracts

D ata-driven investments affects both accounting and finance, creating the need for urgent collaboration between these two realms. How can accounting and finance work together to create a more sustainable world? How can we manage and measure the impact of our investments? What issues and challenges remain to be overcome? Where do investments of the future need to be directed in order to begin to reverse the effects of the climate crisis and transition the world to a low-carbon future? The conference will address these and other themes related to the intersection of sustainable accounting and finance. We invite Abstracts that include, but are not restricted to, the following areas of sustainable accounting and finance:

· Sustainable corporate governance
