Environmental Accounting

Environment accounting (EA) is the practice of accounting for all the contributing factors that result in an existing or potential impact on the environment.

EA is an emerging discipline

EA is separate from financial accounting and has a growing body of knowledge and a small number of qualified practitioners who face many challenges in improving the quality of techniques and technologies supporting this new discipline.

EA is necessary to provide veracity & confidence in environmental reports and spans all levels of reporting – statutory & voluntary, corporate & government.
