Call For Papers

2015 Global Conference of Environmental and Sustainability Management Accounting Network (EMAN)", hosted by the Department of Accounting, University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Sri Lanka. This conference is to be held at the Galadari Hotel, Colombo, Sri Lanka, on 28 - 30 January 2015.
EMAN 2015 Conference Overview

The Environmental and Sustainability Management Accounting Network (EMAN) Asia Pacific (AP) was established in 2001 by professionals and academics working towards the development and promotion of Sustainability Management Accounting. It is closely linked with the EMAN Global Network.

The EMAN Global conferences aim to provide a venue for practitioners and academics to deliberate the latest developments in sustainability and sustainability management accounting. EMAN Global conferences are held all over the world to facilitate globally oriented, yet, locally focused knowledge sharing. This year’s conference in Colombo is hosted by the Department of Accounting of University of Sri Jayewardenepura, which is the premier academic accounting institution in Sri Lanka. It is an ideal platform for international accounting practitioners, academics and researchers who are interested in sustainability and its accounting implications to discuss how and to what extent environmental and sustainability management accounting (EMA) contribute to sustainability management in the Asia Pacific Region.
“Advancing Sustainability Management Accounting in the Asia Pacific Region”

The Asia Pacific region is the fastest-growing source of greenhouse gas emissions and natural resource consumptions. The impact of climate change and rapid natural resource consumptions is evident in the region. The region’s consumption of resources is more than what its ecosystems can replenish, threatening the region’s self-sustaining mechanism. This has resulted in severe droughts, floods and other incidents that caused serious disruptions and volatility in the economies. Many companies in these economies, are facing serious resource constraints as sustainability challenges contribute to high material costs, high transportation costs, rising energy costs and commodity prices.

The companies operating in the Asia Pacific region cause many of sustainability-related problems without recognizing potential opportunities of sustainability management. In particular, local sustainability challenges in the region require different sustainability management approaches to minimize environmental degradation, carbon impacts, and social impacts. In this context, in order to develop operational and strategic approaches, how and to what extent do environmental and sustainability management accounting (EMA) contribute to sustainability management remains a main challenge.

Papers considered to contribute to the theme of this conference include studies that identify this challenge. They may include, but not limited to:

Sustainability performance measurement in the Asia Pacific region
Institutional pressure and sustainability management in the Asia Pacific region
EMA and supply chain management in the Asia Pacific region
EMA for energy and natural resource management in the Asia Pacific region
Sustainability management and Integrated reporting in the Asia Pacific region
Stakeholder management and sustainability management in the Asia Pacific region
Accounting education for sustainability management in the Asia Pacific region
