Environmental accounting, ethics and accountability

This group is aligned closely to the Institute for Sustainable Futures, conducting research in the field of corporate social responsibility (and international trade) with a particular focus on environmental and sustainable practices and reporting by firms and organizations.

Research on the environmental impacts of international trade and industrial competition also links with the Institute for Sustainable Futures, as does modelling the macroeconomic effects of energy market shocks. Cross-disciplinary research tackles sustainable alternatives, carbon reduction and stakeholder resistance and acceptance of future sustainable energy transition developments.
