The aim of the Accounting for Social Impact Research Group is to promote stakeholder-informed and practice-relevant research on accounting for social impact.
Social impact is a significant and emergent theme in contemporary business theory, practice and education. Our research addresses accounting issues affecting organisations that seek to achieve positive social impact. These organisations include:
The focus of the group’s research is on developing evidence-based understanding of how accounting policy and practice can support the achievement, evaluation and reporting of social impact.
How can accounting technologies and practices be used to develop innovative solutions to address real-world problems? We're hosting the Accounting for Social Impact Case Competition on Friday, 26 November 2021. Find out about registering, submissions, dates, prizes and more on our event page.
The Accounting for Social Impact Research Group maintains an active role in research projects in New Zealand and around the world.
We are affiliated with a number of institutions and international researchers, and have a panel for stakeholder engagement.
