The achievement of the seventh sustainable development goal SDG#7 (i.e., affordable, and clean energy) aims at providing access to affordable and clean energy- promoting renewable energy production and use as an alternative to the extensive use of conventional pollutant energy resources. In the efforts to reduce risks and adverse impacts of climate change and to actively contribute to mitigating global warming under the Paris Climate Accord, policymakers are trying to diversify their mix of energy by fostering renewable energy development. In 2019, the SDGs report argued that more than 2.6 billion people representing one-third of the world’s population are using the dangerous and infectious cooking system. In addition, lack of electricity remains a major issue of SDGs because more than 700 million people lack access to electricity and most of them are living in sub-Saharan Africa.

More specifically, several crises with varied origins, have been occurred during the last two decades such as finance crisis (global financial crisis, European sovereign debt, etc.), political and geopolitical tensions, (Brexit, Russia-Ukrainian conflicts, Afghanistan conflicts, Myanmar, etc), climate / natural disasters (floods, ice storms, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc), and health care system related to COVID-19. Overall, these period of turmoil shared some common conditions in terms of excessive profits, savings, capital flows, outsourcing and sweated labour to environmental crimes and accounting scandals, climate destruction, corruption, challenging the business ethics. 

The organizers are inviting authors to submit proposals covering these topical issues related to the Business ethics, CSR, Energy transition, Climate change, and green investments to submit their works. Authors will be expected to participate in the conference and papers will be eligible for publication, subject to editorial review.
