Abstract

Sustainable accounting research should contribute towards sustainable transformation and reducing societies’ negative sustainability impact on our planet. Accounting-sustainability research should produce and communicate knowledge that points the way to a sustainable future. Accounting-sustainability research should critically: confront the unsustainable way the world is; create new accounting knowledge, processes and practices; and problematize, disrupt and engage constructively with transformation processes. The ‘so-what’ question for accounting-sustainability research articles should be: how does this article help with the resolution of the urgent and wicked problems faced by society?
