The 8th Annual Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability (ARCS) Research Conference was held May 18-20, 2016 at the Leeds School of Business, University of Colorado, Boulder. The Conference Chair was Jeff York, Assistant Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship.
The conference brought together 79 scholars, students and practitioners from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives interested in advancing research on corporate sustainability. Participants were from North America, France, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, the UK, Singapore and Japan.
As part of ARCS’ mission to foster first-rate research and build the community of scholars in this domain, we hold an annual research conference designed to bring together scholars interested in corporate sustainability strategy and management. The inaugural conference was held in 2009, hosted by the Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise at the University of Michigan. The conference rotates annually among ARCS members.
