EMAN 2015 Conference Overview
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.
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.
