EMAN, the Environmental and Sustainability Management Network, is a thought-leading network of academics and practitioners interested in the exchange and further development of accounting and reporting approaches to support companies in pursuing sustainable development. Since its foundation in 1997 EMAN has conducted annual conferences and published edited books and special issues of leading journals with new concepts, case studies and analyses on environmental and sustainability accounting and reporting, thus providing researchers, practitioners and conference presenters outlets to disseminate their work. The global EMAN activities are organized in four regional EMANsections, each conducting its own annual meetings or conference, EMAN Europe, EMAN Africa, EMAN Americas, and EMAN Asia Pacific.
