Environmental Accounting: An Introduction
Environmental accounting is the process of identifying, measuring, and communicating information about the environmental impacts of an organization's activities, products, or services. This information can be used to inform internal decision-making and external reporting, and can also be used to assess an organization's performance in relation to its environmental goals and objectives. Environmental accounting can include both monetary and non-monetary measures, and can cover a wide range of topics such as energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, and waste management. Some of the key benefits of environmental accounting include improved resource efficiency, reduced environmental impacts, and increased transparency and accountability.
