Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce our fifth Multinational Enterprise and Sustainable Development conference (MESD'17 -<>) to be held on December 7-9, 2017 at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

MESD'17 focuses on "Sustainable Development Goals:  What Can MNEs Do?"   This multidisciplinary conference builds on a previous research conducted under the auspices of MESD, as an organization and prior conferences.

It is co-organized by the Georgia Tech Center for International Business Education and Research of the Scheller College of Business, The ICN Business School ARTEM, the CEREFIGE consortium of the University of Lorraine and the Georgia Tech Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business, along with local partners.

We look forward to your participation in the form of a paper,  a case, a "best practices" presentation or your active attendance at this event.

The fifth MESD  Conference occurs in the context of a reassessment of the role of the private sector in implementing the sustainable development goals, led by the United States,  and a few days before the upcoming Paris meeting called by President Macron of France, December 12-13, two years following the Paris Accords of December 2015..

Please find attached the detailed Call for papers including all relevant registration, participation and logistic information.
