“In less than five years, accounting for the environment has moved from being considered a marginal topic, to an increasingly central role in the deliberations of the international accounting profession.  Environmental accounting is now seen as an essential element in any organization’s environmental response.  EC proposals in 1992 in Towards Sustainability recognised that accounting must change its most basic concepts and practices if full environmental information is to be a central element in managements organisational decision-making.  Also in 1992, the State of Washington (USA) Department of Ecology issued guidelines on how to develop accounting systems for ‘pollution prevention’.  Such radical proposals from authoritative non-accountancy bodies would have been unthinkable a few years ago.
This book is a sequel to The Greening of Accountancy.  IT seeks to answer the question, ‘What can/should accountants do in response to the developing environmental agenda?’.  Accounting for the Environment lays out the best accounting practice with regard to the environment world-wide and provides ideas for experimentation and future development.”
