The Stanford Graduate School of Business and Doerr School of Sustainability are pleased to host a conference on the subject of “Sustainability Reporting and Control,” at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, on March 10-11, 2023.

This conference seeks to bring together leading academic accounting scholars working on and interested in ESG and Sustainability-related research topics.

Relevant topics for the conference include (but are not limited to):

– Incentives surrounding ESG or Sustainability Reporting decisions.
– Economic consequences of ESG and Sustainability reporting activities.
– Measurement of environmental risks, costs, and exposures.
– Use of sustainability metrics, information, and control systems for stewardship, governance, and internal decision making.
– Interaction of sustainable reporting with the firm’s governance structure and activities.
– How investors or other capital market participants use, process, gather, and produce sustainability-related information.
– How non-capital-market stakeholders use, process, gather, and produce sustainability-related information.
