Ten Years Working Together for a Sustainable Future (Call for Paper)
The guest editors of the Special Issue entitled “Ten Years Working Together for a Sustainable World”, Professors Biagio F. Giannetti, Cecília M. V. B. Almeida, Feni Agostinho, Zhifeng Yang, Gengyuan Liu, are pleased to announce that the papers of the 6th IWACP are potential candidates for this Special Issue of the Journal of Environmental Accounting and Management.
The "International Workshop on Advances in Cleaner Production" is a multi/interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of information and research results on technologies, concepts and policies based on Cleaner Production and conceived to assist the desired transition to a sustainable society.
Cleaner Production is a concept that goes far beyond the simple pollution control. It includes research and development of new processes, materials and products directed to promote the efficient use of resources and energy. Prevention must be the first approach of governments and corporations concerning sustainable development, and for this, environmental friendly strategies allied to economical robustness of products and services must be assured.
The adoption of Cleaner Production by governments, companies, and universities is getting speed with technical assistance and training programs, but it is worthy of attention that all these initiatives, even if implemented by all governments and corporations, do not guarantee the achievement of sustainable development. There is still a lack of a science, and consequently of a consolidated engineering devoted to the sustainable development.
We welcome papers dealing with the conference theme of achieving a global audience to promote discussions about the role of Cleaner Production as a requirement for achieving a sustainable world.
The Call for Papers will be disclaimed during the 6th IWACP.
