Market forces, shaped by stakeholders' demands to make sustainability concerns a corporate priority, have compelled management to embrace sustainability goals and endeavors. As a result, sustainability accounting and reporting has also become a priority, note Niemotko and Tolan.
Sustainability accounting presents a non-financial or qualitative gauge by which corporations are assessed and stock prices determined. This upcoming presentation explores the evolution from traditional financial accounting and reporting to sustainability accounting and reporting. It will also describe how this evolution has affected management and corporate assessment.
The goal of the college's iROC is to provide a forum for Mount faculty, staff, and students to showcase their research endeavors with the college and local communities. Presentations include research proposals, initial data collection, and completed research projects.
