The issues associated with ethics, governance, sustainability and corporate social responsibility are critically important to accounting scholars as well as being important in the world of practice. It is, therefore, hugely rewarding and encouraging that these concerns are placed at the heart of this book and championed by colleagues. The book reflects the central tensions that exist for many of us in the field. On the one hand, we have faith that accounting scholarship and corporate practice will rise to the challenge of social, environmental and ethical concerns. We work with concepts such as accountability and stewardship to inform our emancipatory intentions and desire. On the other hand, we harbour concerns about greenwashing and impression management intentions of those companies we seek to transform. Failure and redemption are the two sides of this coin. This collection of work from influential scholars takes a fresh approach to these concerns and plays them out in the context of integrates reporting, non-financial assurance, health and safety decision-making and tax avoidance, among others. I hope and trust you will find much in these pages that inform your reflections and actions.

Abstract

The issues associated with ethics, governance, sustainability and corporate social responsibility are critically important to accounting scholars as well as being important in the world of practice. It is, therefore, hugely rewarding and encouraging that these concerns are placed at the heart of this book and championed by colleagues. The book reflects the central tensions that exist for many of us in the field. On the one hand, we have faith that accounting scholarship and corporate practice will rise to the challenge of social, environmental and ethical concerns. We work with concepts such as accountability and stewardship to inform our emancipatory intentions and desire. On the other hand, we harbour concerns about greenwashing and impression management intentions of those companies we seek to transform. Failure and redemption are the two sides of this coin. This collection of work from influential scholars takes a fresh approach to these concerns and plays them out in the context of integrates reporting, non-financial assurance, health and safety decision-making and tax avoidance, among others. I hope and trust you will find much in these pages that inform your reflections and actions.
