Leanne Keddie

(MENAFN- The Conversation) Leanne Keddie is an Assistant Professor of Accounting at the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. She earned her PhD in Accountancy from the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University in Montreal, QC. Her current research follows two key streams. In the first, she examines the use of environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance-based goals in executive bonus plans. Second, Dr. Keddie is leading an interdisciplinary team exploring Canada's transition towards a circular economy; her role examines how food retailers are tackling the measurement, reduction and redirection of food waste. Broadly, her sustainability accounting research is of interest to a variety of stakeholders including management, shareholders, regulators, and standard setters as interest continues to grow in social and environmental matters. She believes in the power of accounting to move the world towards sustainability. Her work has received FRQSC and SSHRC funding and has been published in the British Journal of Management, Advances in Environmental Accounting & Management and Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal. Dr. Keddie is also a steering committee member for Accounting for Impact which seeks to broaden academic work to share our knowledge with general audiences. To this end, she has contributed her expertise to The Conversation, the Canadian Climate Institute, the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Energy Working Group, the development of continuing education modules for CPAs across Canada and writing standard setting response letters amongst other initiatives. Her work has been highlighted by various podcasts, Global News, CBC, and other mainstream media outlets.
