This was the 2nd annual conference of the Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability (ARCS), a consortium of universities that share a strong commitment to research on business and sustainability. The conference brought together scholars from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives interested in advancing research on corporate sustainability, and was hosted by Professor Michael Toffel with the support of ARCS Managing Director Erika Herz and the organizing committee listed below. This event followed the inaugural ARCS conference at University of Michigan that was held a year earlier, in May 2009. The call for papers sought submissions of unpublished working papers focused on business and sustainability issues (both social and environmental) from all disciplines and methodologies.
