Murdoch empowers corporate ethics

July 13, 2017

Dr Martin Brueckner is the convenor of an international conference on corporate social responsibility and sustainability.

Murdoch University’s expertise in corporate social responsibility and sustainability will be showcased at an international conference later this month.

Hosted by the University’s Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability, the conference will bring together delegates from 40 nations to present their latest research and to outline practical implications for business, society, academic and politics.

The fourth International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainability, Ethics and Governance will also involve representatives from industry, government and non-government organisations.

Convenor Dr Martin Brueckner from Murdoch’s School of Business and Governance said the conference had a topical theme in the current unstable world.

“With the political world in uproar, it is fitting that our conference theme is Responsible Business for Uncertain Times and a Sustainable Future,” Dr Brueckner said.

“Conference highlights will include roundtable discussions on topics such as responsible mining, involving representatives from mining firms South 32 and Base Resources, and Murdoch PhD student Charles Roche, who is executive director of the Mineral Policy Institute.

“Murdoch researcher Dr Janice Dudley will also be part of an expert panel on questions surrounding business education with ethics and purpose.”

The conference has been organised in collaboration with the Global Corporate Governance Institute and takes place at Murdoch’s Perth Campus between 26 and 28 July.
