CARR, in collaboration with the Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research (CSEAR) at the Universities of Glasgow and Aberdeen, organised a fascinating 2-day workshop on the new public dimensions of environmental governance. The workshop focussed in particular on the perception, assessment, management and accounting aspects of the environmental risks associated with industrial activity. Focusing on the structures for corporate environmental governance, the workshop addressed issues of environmental risk from the outside in - by examining the evolving nature of social, market and government regulations relating to environmental risk. The workshop also addressed these issues from the inside out - by examining the ways in which different businesses have accounted for environmental risk and engaged with the range of external stakeholders who have an interest in their performance. The workshop brought together a range of senior academic experts from around the UK to discuss contemporary trends and issues in environmental risk management and finished with a practitioner roundtable.
