The theme of this year’s conference is “A Greener Bottom Line.” The evolving business environment and an increased concern for the ecosystem have an effect on the accounting industry and the business world as a whole. The focus has shifted from just “profit or loss” to a “Triple Bottom Line”, which focuses on social, ecological and financials.
In today’s global market, companies are obtaining a competitive advantage through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives and creating sustainable development growth that is produced without a major cost to their communities and environment. Through the practical case and exposure to workshops, we aim to bring increased awareness to environmental issues and CSR initiatives, and the impact that these have on business decisions and operations. Through collaboration with industry professionals and keynote speakers, students will come to develop an understanding of this rapidly changing business dynamic.
