ARCS 2015


Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability, Northwestern University, Chicago, 13-15 May 2015; Deadline 9 Jan


Join us for the 7th Annual ARCS Conference, hosted by the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, to be held Wed. May 13 – Fri. May 15, 2015!

The Call for Papers seeks submissions of unpublished working papers focused on business and sustainability issues (both social and environmental) from all disciplines and research areas. Papers are due January 9, 2015.

We are receptive to a wide range of perspectives and methods, including empirical research (quantitative and qualitative), theory development, formal theoretical modeling, and experimental methods. We are particularly interested in papers that have implications for management, organizations and policy.

Examples of suitable topics for the ARCS 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 "base of the pyramid" development strategies.

We especially encourage submissions from junior scholars and new scholars in the field. In the 2014 conference, approximately 60% of presenters were included on the program for the first time.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago this spring!
