In this subject students will develop an understanding of the various vested interests in relation to corporate, social, environmental and sustainable accounting. The context for existing practices and a range of social and environmental pressures that influence accounting and reporting behaviour will be considered. In developing and understanding of links between companies, sustainability, and accountability, students will enhance their ability to critique accounting, reporting and auditing practices more generally. Key skills of critical analysis, collecting, organizing and interpreting materials, working in groups, and oral communication will be developed.
