The 3rd Annual ARCS Conference was sponsored by the Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership (IGEL) at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
This research conference brought together approximately 130 scholars from 72 institutions and eleven countries, representing a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives of those interested in advancing research on corporate sustainability. The conference was hosted by Professor Eric Orts at Wharton, with support from IGEL Associate Director Joanne Spigonardo, and the organizing committee listed below. This event follows the inaugural ARCS Conference at the University of Michigan and the 2nd Annual ARCS Conference at Harvard Business School.
The call for papers [pdf] sought submissions of unpublished working papers focused on business and sustainability issues (both social and environmental) from all disciplines and methodologies. Click here for conference papers and slide presentations.
