In 2015, the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the same year at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP21), all parties reached a landmark agreement, the Paris Agreement, a legally binding international treaty on climate change. Accordingly, governments around the globe have proposed legislation to realize net zero emissions. International enterprises lead the supply chain to commit to carbon neutrality in attempts to combat climate change. In recent years, the concept of Environment-Social-Governance (ESG) has been highly recognized by industries, governments, academics and researchers, and has also become the focus of analytical and empirical research in management-related disciplines. ESG is now a key indicator to measure sustainability and competitive advantages of companies.
To encourage research on issues related to ESG and management innovation, and to deepen academic cooperation with international institutions, NTU Management Review of College of Management at National Taiwan University (NTU) and the Macquarie Business School (MQBS) are jointly organizing the 2023 conference titled “ESG and Management Innovation”. Macquarie Business School is at the top of world rankings, and continues to exercise influences over ESG fields. It has fruitful research achievements based on wide-ranging topics, such as corporate sustainability, adaptation and resilience to climate change and global environmental change.
At this conference, through the cooperation between Macquarie University and NTU, we hope to introduce novel theories and concepts to both the academics and industries, and improve corporate sustainability and ESG both in Australia and in Taiwan. Focusing on cutting-edge topics on ESG and management innovation, we look forward to facilitating in-depth discussion about the presented papers and fostering interaction among participants.
In order to improve the quality of all contributed papers and to facilitate the formation of a focal research community, “ESG and Management Innovation” will take place in 2023 at MQBS. We will also provide participants with comments and suggestions in the use of revision. Scholars from management-related disciplines around the globe are welcome to contribute.
