Stakeholders increasingly demand information on social and environmental responsibility to be considered in organizational resource-allocation decisions, which implies the existence of accounting standards that ensure the recognition of social effects at a level that allows for the production of quality and useful information for decision making. Therefore, financial and non-financial reporting should promote the rigor and transparency of information disclosed by organiations for stakeholders to make a fair evaluation of organizational economic, social, and environmental performance. In a global and digital world, this becomes more difficult to achieve.
This Special Issue focuses on the broad topic "Financial and Sustainability Reporting in a Digital Era" and aims to encourage submissions building on interdisciplinary research in fields, such as accounting, business, economy, governmental policies, gender and diversity studies, artificial intelligence, national and international regulations/standards and digital transformation, or other studies that contribute to the development of sustainability and financial reporting in a digital era. We welcome papers based on a broad conceptualization of Financial and Sustainability Reporting, including, but not limited to, topics, such as new challenges for information actors, financial and non-financial reporting today and in the future and the risk relevance of international financial and sustainability reporting.
We invite contributions of unpublished original research papers that promote the use of different methodological approaches (theoretical and empirical, both quantitative and qualitative).
