CALL FOR PAPERS
ARCS Fourth Annual Research Conference
Wednesday May 16 - Friday May 18, 2012
Yale University Center for Business and the Environment
New Haven, Connecticut, USA
This Yale Center for Business and the Environment (CBEY) and Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability (ARCS) conference will bring together scholars from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives interested in advancing research on corporate sustainability. This is the fourth annual conference of ARCS, a consortium of universities that seeks to provide data, tools and networking opportunities to researchers who are developing a greater understanding of the opportunities and limits of policies and strategies to foster sustainable business. The conference builds on the successful Third Annual ARCS Conference hosted by the Wharton School last spring.
The conference welcomes unpublished working papers focused on business and sustainability (both social and environmental) from all disciplines and research areas.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 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.
The ARCS Conference will be preceded on May 16 by the first ARCS Sustainability Teaching Summit - From Classrooms to Boardrooms: Embedding Sustainability Research in Curriculum and Corporate Strategy, to showcase and discuss the latest available pedagogical approaches, tools and materials. The conference will begin with dinner on May 16th, and conclude the afternoon of May 18th.
