    Corporate Sustainability Performance Measurement Systems: A Review and Research Agenda. [REVIEW]Cory Searcy - 2012 - Journal of Business Ethics 107 (3):239-253.
    Corporate sustainability performance measurement systems (SPMS) have been the subject of a growing amount of research. However, there are many challenges and opportunities associated with the design, implementation, use, and evolution of these systems that have yet to be addressed. The purpose of this article is to identify future directions for research in the design, implementation, use, and evolution of corporate SPMS. A concise review of key literature published between 2000 and 2010 is presented. The literature review focuses on research (...)

    Classification of Trade-Offs Encountered in the Practice of Corporate Sustainability.Merriam Haffar & Cory Searcy - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics 140 (3):495-522.
    Trade-offs between the conflicting aspects of corporate sustainability have hindered the realization of win–win opportunities that advance both sustainable development and the bottom line. The question today is no longer whether these trade-offs are encountered in the pursuit of CS, but under which circumstances they occur, with which responses, and how best to navigate them. This study conducted a systematic review and content analysis of the trade-off literature published to-date at both conceptual and applied levels. Through this process, a hierarchical (...)

    A Review of Sustainable Supply Chain Management Practices in Canada. [REVIEW]Oguz Morali & Cory Searcy - 2013 - Journal of Business Ethics 117 (3):635-658.
    There is a growing body of research on the theory and practice of sustainable supply chain management (SSCM). However, relatively little research has been conducted on the extent to which corporations have integrated sustainability principles into the management of their supply chain and the evaluation of supplier performance. The purpose of this article is to explore the extent to which corporate sustainability principles are integrated into supply chain management (SCM) in corporations. Canada is used as a case study in this (...)

    Corporate Perspectives on the Development and Use of Sustainability Reports.Cory Searcy & Ruvena Buslovich - 2014 - Journal of Business Ethics 121 (2):1-21.
    The purpose of this paper is to explore corporate perspectives on the development and use of sustainability reports. Interviews with experts from 35 Canadian corporations were conducted. The research showed that the content of the reports was determined by following standards, conducting an internal evaluation, and other methods. Five corporations were found to develop fully integrated reports, while another 15 included some sustainability aspects in their annual reports. The extent of external stakeholder involvement in the development of the report varied (...)

    A Heuristic Model for Establishing Trade-Offs in Corporate Sustainability Performance Measurement Systems.Jonathan Pryshlakivsky & Cory Searcy - 2017 - Journal of Business Ethics 144 (2):323-342.
    A large body of the literature on sustainability indicators, assessments and reporting is currently available. However, sustainability performance measurement systems have an insubstantial presence in the literature. Invariably, a sustainability performance measurement system presents the potential for certain trade-offs or opportunity costs for organizations. Extant sustainability platforms and standards are largely silent about how to deal with trade-offs. Utilizing evidence from the literature, as well as contingency factors, this paper seeks to present a heuristic model for establishing trade-offs in corporate (...)

    Paymasters and Assurance Providers: Exploring Firms’ Discretion in Selecting Non-Financial Auditors.Daniel Prajogo, Pavel Castka & Cory Searcy - 2020 - Journal of Business Ethics 173 (4):795-811.
    Ethical issues in non-financial auditing are increasingly under scrutiny and questions have been raised about the impartiality and independence of audits. Among many other problematic issues, firms have discretion to select their assurance providers and are also required to cover the cost of the audit. Previous literature highlighted several consequences of this competitive and client-driven environment. However, research has mainly focused on firm-level investigation of the consequences—in this paper, we enhance this research by also considering assurance providers. Our approach is (...)
