Sustainability in Action

Social Responsibility Journal

A new SRRNet venture:

Accountability and its constituents:

Corporate governance; Sustainability; Risk Management

Dates: 25-27 October 2023

Venue:  Haute Ecole Francisco Ferrer, Brussels

For this new initiative from SRRNet we combine with Haute Ecole Francisco Ferrer to hold a new style workshop in Brussels on the theme of accountability and the future implications of this accountability. This is an opportunity to explore these issues and the implications for the future, and, of course, for our research.


The beginning of 2020 decade brings huge challenges in the society and the role of organizations of all kinds were critical and the accountability of such organizations, in a blink of an eye, were a huge issue in accountability.

Issues in accountability include corporate communications but also go beyond since accountability is both a communication tool and a performance tool to report about areas of responsibility of the organization such as;

  • Corporate governance & accountability;
  • Sustainability & accountability;
  • Risk management & accountability;
  • Applied research in High Education system.

This event is designed to act as a forum for debating and analyzing contemporary issues in this broad area. It is intended to attract people from a wide variety of disciplines and geographic regions for an exchange of views.

This workshop is also an opportunity to extend the knowledge of our students in a multidimensional world and to allow them to tackle the challenges that they will have to address tomorrow, as active actors of the society.

The event is intended to be interdisciplinary and welcomes contributions from anyone with a perspective on this crucial issue. Papers are welcome on any topic related to this broad issue, and suggested themes for papers include:

  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability
  • CSR and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Climate change and business activity
