CALL FOR PAPERS
Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability | Second Annual Conference | May 12-14, 2010 | Harvard Business School | http://www.hbs.edu/units/tom/conferences/2010/arcs/
This Harvard Business School conference seeks to bring together scholars from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives interested in advancing research on corporate sustainability. This is the second annual conference of the Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability (ARCS) (http://www.corporate-sustainability.org/), a consortium of universities that provides data, tools, and networking opportunities to researchers who are developing a greater understanding of the opportunities and limits of policies and strategies to create sustainable businesses. This conference builds on the successful inaugural ARCS conference at the University of Michigan last spring (http://www.erb.umich.edu/arcs/aarcs-home.htm).
The conference welcomes unpublished working papers focused on business and sustainability (both social and environmental) from all disciplines and research areas. We are receptive to a wide range of perspectives and methods including empirical research, theory development, formal theoretical modeling, and experimental methods. We are particularly interested in papers that have implications for management and organizations. Papers drawn from organizational theory, strategy, operations, sociology, psychology and decision making, law, economics, political science, and other fields are within the realm of the conference.
Examples of 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, green entrepreneurship, sustainable natural resource management, and “bottom of the pyramid” development strategies.
