About me

My research interests are at the interface of business, society and the natural environment. I am interested in understanding the role of private corporations and business world in the societies' struggle with the escalating global environmental challenges. I consider accounting and accountability to be of major importance in this quest. More specifically, I keep asking whether the increased popularity of the so called sustainability accounting and reporting in the corporate sector actually enhances societies' pursuit of sustainability.
