We are delighted to host a virtual workshop on Special issue on Standard-Setting of Sustainability Reporting, open to academics, accounting standard setters and regulators, and other members of the accounting profession. 

Recently, there has been an intensifying discourse and significant developments on the regulatory work needed to converge and consolidate reporting frameworks for non-financial reporting. Against this backdrop, the Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal (SAMPJ) has invited submissions for a special issue on this topic.
