Pavia Research Workshop “Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability: Performance management and Reporting”
The University of Pavia, Department of Economics and Management, will host the Pavia Research Workshop “Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability: Performance management and Reporting” on the 13th of November 2019.
The need for corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices is not new in the management field. In addition, the call for more sustainable action was boosted also by the definition of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the 2030 UN Agenda, which have helped to pay more and more attention to the concept of sustainable development in the long term (Bebbington and Unermann, 2018; SDG, 2016). Businesses are responding to this call by promoting ethical, social and environmental practices (Abhayawansa and Guthrie, 2016; Druz et al., 2017; Hummel et al., 2017, Merchant and White, 2017). However, we still have limited knowledge of the role of performance management in implementing social and sustainable practices within organizational activities (Arjaliès and Mundy, 2013). More specifically, little is known about how performance management and control practices can support vs. inhibit the decision-making (Norris and O’Dwyer, 2004), leadership (Morsing and Oswald, 2009), implementation and execution of CSR strategies (Durden, 2008; Riccaboni and Leone, 2010).
