Project: Environmental accounting as an instrument towards sustainable development. Theoretical and empirical analysis of possibilities, limitations and policy options.

project duration
01-JAN-98 – 28-FEB-00
This research project wants to explore the concept of environmental accounting. The main goal of this project is analysing to what extent environmental accounting can help companies take up their responsibility towards the realisation of sustainable development. This instrument will be evaluated through a theoretical and empirical analysis on limitations, possibilities for integration with environmental management systems and (management) accounting systems. This will result in recommendations towards companies and other stakeholders in an implementation manual and in the development of a training program.
