Assistant Professor Diane-Laure Arjaliès was recently appointed to the United Nations (UN) Global Compact Expert Network, an international advisory group made up of approximately 70 cross-sectoral experts.
The UN Global Compact is an initiative aimed at helping corporations achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Expert Network advises on business sustainability trends and challenges. The group’s input directly shapes Global Compact programs and activities.
Arjaliès will bring her expertise in accounting for sustainable development to help build an oversight program that will measure corporate commitments to the SDGs. This work builds on previous research conducted with Delphine Gibassier (University of Birmingham), who was also recently appointed to the Expert Network.
To kickoff her role, Arjaliès will be attending the UN Global Compact Expert Network Retreat in New York in July 2019.
