Research

Jared’s PhD thesis sought to develop new sustainability accounting techniques and promote practical change in the higher education sector. Using a variant of Action Research, the thesis built a new Full Cost Accounting (‘FCA’) model in an open and democratic manner and utilised the model to analyse a new campus development. (FCA measures in common monetary terms the full economic, environmental and social impacts of an organisation’s activities and identifies costs that are not usually accounted for.) The thesis utilised a meta theoretical framework drawing on dialogics, organisational change theory and institutional theory.

Since completing his PhD, Jared has worked on developing a framework to incorporate accounting for biodiversity into FCA models.
