How Green is Strategic Decision-Making in a 'Green Company'?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Despite the significance of international Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the policy world (United Nations, 2015), accounting researchers have been slow to participate in SDG-motivated research (Bebbington and Unerman, 2018). Research on sustainability in accounting has tended to focus on environmental and integrated reporting (past performance), rather than on strategic project appraisal (future performance). The gap we identified in the literature is whether and how organisational decision-making balances financial and non-financial considerations to achieve the SDGs as well as financial goals.
