Environmental, Ecological and Extinction Accounting, Governance and Economics Research Group

The Environmental, Ecological and Extinction Accounting, Governance and Economics Research (EEEAGER) Group, formally recognised in October 2023, is a world-leading forum for interdisciplinary, international academic and practitioner research in the fields of accounting, governance and economics.

Addressing 21st century environmental, ecological and extinction challenges arising from the climate crisis, global warming, ecological and ecosystem degradation, biodiversity collapse, mass species extinctions, and water scarcity.


The EEEAGER Group is an inclusive community which integrates environmental, ecological and extinction researchers from other business and governance-related disciplines including financial management, management, marketing, strategy, international business, logistics, human resource management, and operations, as well as from other academic disciplines. All our research activities contribute to Cardiff Business School’s Public Value strategy.

The EEEAGER Group acts as a forum for international and interdisciplinary researchers from academia and practice in the fields of accounting, governance and economics to meet, share ideas and work collaboratively to address the environmental and ecological challenges faced by organisations across all sectors and their stakeholders today.

Such collaborative research will lead to the development of theoretical and practical frameworks, tools, mechanisms and solutions that can be applied in practice to solve, or at least progress, towards solutions to these challenges.

The EEEAGER Group will contribute to the School’s objective of producing internationally excellent research by providing a forum for like-minded researchers from around the world to meet, exchange ideas, collaborate on research projects, write and publish papers and books together, apply for research funding and produce research outputs of the highest quality in world-leading international journals.

The EEEAGER Group’s work will also lead to substantial impacts on organisations, society and the environment.

The History of the EEEAGER Group

The EEEAGER Group provides a physical home at Cardiff Business School for the existing online EAGR (Extinction Accounting and Governance Research) Network which was established in January 2021 during the pandemic as an online network of international and interdisciplinary researchers who run regular online seminars under the title ‘IFEAR4FUTURE’. We are continuing this online seminar series with regular seminars and discussants throughout the year.
