The Conference Organizing Committee is currently inviting submission of abstracts for the 9th International CSR, Sustainability, Ethics & Governance Conference 2023 to be held from the 14th to the 16th of June 2023 in Santander, Spain.

The definition of sustainability is broad and is informed by the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Agenda for 2030, which lists 17 goals. Those goals can be seen at

All abstracts submitted will be reviewed and considered for acceptance, and authors will be notified by e-mail of the outcome of the review process. All accepted abstracts will be included in the conference programme and made available to all conference delegates.
