Much has been written in recent years on corporate reporting practices within the ambit of corporate governance. Olanrewaju Monsuru Sharafa presents his findings

Arguably since the mid-1990s traditional corporate reporting systems have faced a threat posed by reporting beyond numbers or corporate sustainability reporting which according to Christofi (2012) evolved “as a result of economic growth, environmental regulation-stewardship, and a push for social justice and equity".

This seminar presents some dimensions of sustainability reporting and will explain the whys and wherefores of sustainability disclosure within the context of corporate governance. The motivation is to present a work in progress which is moving towards a new conceptual framework for sustainability reporting.

The new season of “research today!” seminars is now open

Season two of our “research today!” seminars opens this week. If you haven’t been to one before, these are short presentations of emerging or new research in the School of Business, followed by an informal discussion. They last an hour, they are happening every week from now until the end of term, and this season is bigger and better than ever with some exciting guests.

Who can attend?  Anyone interested can attend. Please email Karin Moser on to register.

Who can present? Researchers and doctoral students from the Business School and associated guests, visitors and collaborators. This is a research forum to exchange ideas, get to know each other's research and foster collaboration in a collegial and friendly environment. The Season Two programme is full, but you can still book a spot for Season Three this autumn. Contact Karin Moser on
