Research Interest

In the new complex business context, all organizations depend on various forms of capital to achieve strategic objectives to benefit all stakeholders.

Stakeholders now expect companies to report on non-financial issues with the same discipline and rigor as financial information to ensure long-term value creation. The role played by non-financial types of corporate capital (human, customer, structural, digital, and environmental) in creating and maintaining the sustainable value chain, to benefit all stakeholders, has become as much important as the role of the traditional financial capital. We now see international standards emerge in transforming non-financial information into pre-financial data and forecasted financial results. One such non-financial metrics is “ethical behavior”. The World Economic Forum provided “a clearly defined and practical agenda for business to pursue ethical behavior in a way that aligned with the UN SDGs, OESD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights”.
