Centre for Sustainability Governance

'Insert tagline here'

Sustainability is central to modern business. No company, government department or NGO can ignore it, and most understand the importance of embedding a sustainability ethos as part of their operations. It is an increasingly complex concept, however, both for individual entities and for the wider economy, which must respond to changes in policy, regulation and attitude.

The Centre for Sustainability Governance looks at the practicalities of sustainability from a business perspective, bringing together economists, accountants and finance specialists from a range of backgrounds. Our work covers three broad themes. 

  • Sustainability accounting and reporting has a particular focus on the evolution of integrated accounting and how organisations are using social media and digital communications. 
  • Environmental finance embraces issues such as carbon pricing and the way stock markets react to change.
  • Water governance and policy looks at how governments around the world can best allocate and re-allocate a vital but fugitive resource 

There is a strong overlap with the work of the Centre for Applied Finance and Economics, particularly in areas such as corporate social responsibility and climate change.
