DEI Seminar Series

In this presentation, Carol will talk about her past and present programme of research work on corporate responsibility and accountability for environmental and social impacts and more recent work on aligning corporate strategy with achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

Carol is Professor of Accounting at Durham University Business School. Her work is concerned with the role of accounting and reporting in the relationships between business, society and the environment. For over two decades she has sought to advance practice and policy with respect to integrating sustainability considerations into organisations through applied research, leadership, standard setting, advisory work and educating the next generation of business leaders.

Carol consults to multinational corporations and other organisations on corporate reporting and integrating sustainability into business practices. Recent assignments have included work with Royal Bank of Scotland and Dairy Australia on sustainability reporting, a utility company and Cbus Superannuation fund on integrated reporting.

All DEI Seminars are free to attend and open to the public. Pre-bookable parking is available on campus for non-university attendees. Please email if you would like a parking bay reserving.
