ARCS Forum (April 29)
To bridge the communities of practitioners, researchers, and educators focused on the area of corporate sustainability, the ARCS is hosting a one-day Forum as part of its annual academic conference. This year’s objective is to spark a useful discussion on business models for sustainability. The morning session will kick-off with an overview of the current status of sustainable business practice and then leave the balance of the day to consider the merits of emerging examples in the areas of market-based approaches, customer engagement, and motivating change toward sustainability in companies. The debate will be lively as researchers and practitioners come together to share and compare their science-based findings and real-world experience.
ARCS Research Conference (April 30 and May 1)
As part of ARCS's mission to foster first-rate research and build the community of scholars in this domain, it holds an annual research conference designed to bring together scholars interested in corporate sustainability strategy and management.
The ARCS is receptive to a wide range of research perspectives and methodologies including formal theoretical modeling, quantitative research drawing upon historical or archival data, surveys or publicly available data, and qualitative research. ARCS is particularly interested in papers that have implications for management and policy. Papers drawn from economics, political science, strategic management, and other fields are within the realm of the conference.
Suitable topics for the conference include non-market strategy, climate change management, sustainability reporting and disclosure, green supply chains, green marketing, sustainable finance, renewable energy investments, business/NGO partnerships, sustainable mobility, social dimensions of sustainability, cleantech innovation, and green entrepreneurship.
