    Call for papers: Journal of Industrial Ecology  special issue on Environmental Impacts of Demand-Side Technologies and Strategies for Carbon Mitigation

    Deadline: June 30, 2014 

    For the full call for papers, please go to: http://jie.yale.edu/JIE-cfp-Demand-SideStrategies to reduce the emission of greenhouse (GHG) gases include supply and demand side approaches.  The focus of this special issue is on the demand side approaches.  Most research focuses on the efficacy and cost of these technologies and strategies in reducing GHG emissions.  These strategies, however, also have non-GHG environmental impacts­ on air and water quality, on human and ecosystem health as well as natural resource impacts.  Research on these non-GHG impacts is less developed than that which examines carbon mitigation.  This is especially true for demand-side strategies, which focus on improvements in energy and material efficiency.

    This special issue is intended to fill that gap.

    Call for Submissions: The 6th Annual Next Generation ESG Workshop

    One-on-One Scholarly Training for Select PhD students

    Due: February 14, 2014

    The Next Generation Workshop focusing on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues is a two-day event that brings together promising doctoral researchers and world-leading experts in ESG-related research, to foster these young researchers’ talents. More broadly, the workshop aims to establish a dialogue between current and future ESG researchers. 

    Three internationally recognized experts are invited to campus for three days May 19-21st, 2014, in conjunction with the Bentley Global Business Ethics Symposium. They will join a group of competitively chosen doctoral students in a series of presentations and discussions, including one-on-one feedback between expert and student. Students also have the opportunity to participate in Bentley’s highly regarded Teaching Business Ethics Workshop, held the same week.

    Student Selection 

    Doctoral students working in relevant areas are invited to submit papers to participate in the Next Generation ESG Workshop. We seek candidates from institutions worldwide and from different theoretical and methodological traditions. The interdisciplinary workshop welcomes applications from students in management, political science, philosophy, economics, environmental studies and sociology, to name a few. Participants must be currently enrolled in a doctoral program, preferably in their third year; their research must be ESG related.  


    Students should submit a paper of 5,000 to 7,000 words to be evaluated by a conference coordinating committee prior to the workshop. Selection criteria are the paper’s relevance to the conference focus, quality of research, practical relevance, and clarity of research description. Please note that the submission should have one author and represent work that is “in progress” but also well thought out and articulated. Selection is competitive, with students awarded stipends for travel and participation.

    Please email submissions by February 14, 2014, to:

    Cynthia Clark, PhD  |  Director, Harold S. Geneen Institute of Corporate Governance

    NineSigma is contacting you to make you aware of The LAUNCH: BEYOND WASTE CHALLENGE "Innovative Waste Technologies and Deployment Models for Sustainable Development."

    NASA, USAID, The Department of State, and NIKE joined together to form LAUNCH in an effort to identify, showcase and support innovative approaches to global sustainability challenges. LAUNCH searches for visionaries whose world-class ideas, technologies or programs show great promise for making tangible impacts on society in the developed and/or developing worlds.

    The goal of the LAUNCH: Beyond Waste Challenge is to identify 10 "game changing" innovations that have the potential to transform current waste management systems and practices to ones focused on minimizing waste and/or transforming waste into new products. NineSigma has identified you as a party with the potential to respond to this Challenge, or as a contact who might know of someone with expertise in these areas.

    This invitation is not a complete description of the project. More information is available in the Challenge document document online at http://www.ninesigma.com/viewrequest.aspx?request=68283&utm_source=Email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=68283 (or click here to go directly to the web page). The final submission date a Statement of Interest is May 15, 2012.

    If after reviewing the full Challenge document you are interested in submitting a Statement or would like more information, please contact me by email and reference LAUNCH: BEYOND WASTE CHALLENGE (NS# 68283) in the subject line. All responses must be submitted directly to LAUNCH.org: http://launch.org/forum/11/beyond-waste/. Please do not submit responses to NineSigma as this will delay your official submission.
