Emilia Cederberg's current research projects revolve around various topics on sustainability and quantified accounts, with empirical foci such as carbon accounting, ESG, climate risk and consumption-based GHG emissions.
She currently teaches consolidated financial statements/M&A as well as non-financial performance analysis (primarily carbon accounting) in the bachelor programme level. She also advises theses on bachelor and master level.
Her PhD, entitled "The Ins and Outs of ESG. A study on the spatialities of accounting change" (2019) was awarded the Oskar Sillén Prize for best dissertation in business administration in Sweden, as well as a Wallander scholarship.
The study, which was financed by the Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets and formed part of Mistra Financial Systems, explored the practice of environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis within Nordic asset manager organizations. Methodologically, it combined interviews and observations, and theoretically the study was situated within socio-material studies of accounting.
She previously worked as an analyst at Sustainalytics in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
Her Master’s thesis, which received the Oskar Sillén Award for outstanding essay in accounting (2015), explored the process of non-financial target-setting, through a comparative case study of targets for CO2 reduction and sustainable innovation in a publicly listed multi-national manufacturing company. She holds a B.Sc. in Business & Economics (2012) and a M.Sc. (2014) in Accounting and Financial Management, both from the Stockholm School of Economics. She also participated in an exchange semester within the MBA programme of the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina, US.
