Accountability in a Sustainable World returns to Climate Week NYC for its 3rd annual conference on September 20-21, 2023, in conjunction with the Sustainable Investment Forum North America and UNEP-FI. In order to minimize the carbon footprint and accommodate as many delegates as possible, these sessions will be presented virtually.
The conference will include over 50 academic and non-academic speakers. Continuing upon the successes of the previous two conferences, the 2023 Accountability in a Sustainable World conference will delve deeper into regulation, sustainability reporting, capital allocation, and performance metrics. The ongoing conversation will answer the immediate need for dialogue among academics and non-academics about sustainability, data and measurement, related assurance, high-quality information to inform responsible investment decisions, and accountability in setting personal, corporate, and public sector goals.
This conference will focus on key concerns regarding the assurance of a sustainable future: the changing sustainability reporting landscape, the politicization of ESG, accounting for sustainability with a particular emphasis on carbon accounting, measurement, and assurance, performance metrics, the new corporate focus on sustainability, the effects of carbon footprint information on consumer choice and thoughts from a younger generation. A main feature of the conference is to generate discourse between academics and non-academics, featuring high-profile, well-informed, often provocative speakers.
