prof. Massimo Contrafatto prof. Ericka CostaThe Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research (CSEAR) is an international scholar network whose aim is to enhance, promote and disseminate research and knowledge in the field of social and environmental accounting and reporting as a means to envisage and build a more sustainable society and economy.

CSEAR Italy is one of the Nation-based satellites of CSEAR, the Centre for Social and Environmental Research that is currently based in St. Andrews (Scotland).

The CSEAR Italian Office was formally set up in January 2014 as a culmination of dialogues and initiatives, which had been organized over the past years and since the first CSEAR Italian Conference held in the University of Bergamo in 2006. In particular, it was during the IV Italian CSEAR Conference held in Levico Terme (Trento-Italy), when the 'historical' group of the Italian CSEAR members came together to talk about current problems and future perspectives of research in social and environmental accounting and reporting in the Italian context.

Aims

The CSEAR Italian Office, in collaboration with the colleagues of the wider CSEAR Network, aims to facilitate research and disseminate knowledge in the field of social and environmental accounting and accountability by promoting dialogue and collaboration between academia, policy-makers, business, practitioners and other societal stakeholder groups. In particular, CSEAR Italy aims to:

  • Operate as a center for the promotion and dissemination of research and knowledge in the field of social and environmental accounting and reporting
  • Act as a relevant national observatory of best practice in terms of social and environmental accounting and reporting
  • Be a reference point for the Italian scholars who are interested in the issues related to social and environmental accounting and reporting
  • Promote research collaboration between academia, business and other society stakeholder groups
  • Provide support to the wider social and economic community, through specific educative programmes that highlight the social concerns and the need for realizing an awareness of the impact of corporate social dimension and sustainable development
