Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit your works for open access publication in this Special Issue of Sustainability entitled “Management Control Systems to Sustainability”. The success of sustainability politics depends on the capacity to measure and control sustainability issues with informative value in an accurate and timely manner. Accounting and management systems should be considered relevant for the successful implementation of sustainability policies. This Special Issue aims to publish studies concerning systems to manage and control sustainability issues.

Research areas for the Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Environmental management and accounting;
  • Sustainability and management accounting tools;
  • Financial and non-financial measurement systems;
  • Sustainability balanced scorecard;
  • Activity-based costing/management;
  • Benchmarking;
  • Total quality management;
  • The relationship between sustainability and emerging accounting tools and concepts.

The Special Issue welcomes both qualitative and quantitative studies, as well as empirical and theoretical contributions.
