TheMoreThe relationship between companies and the environment in which they operate is of growing importance, with senior management increasingly recognising that they have a responsibility not just to shareholders but also to their other stakeholders. The process of social and environmental accounting seeks to embed these responsibilities within a companys accounting and reporting procedures. With the likelihood of regulations on environmental and social policy coming into force in the next few years, now is the time to get to grips with this process. This briefing offers practical advice on conducting social and environmental accounting. It provides a guide to the debate, a review of current practice and develops a practical framework for action. You will gain a clear understanding of the issues, the implications for your own organisation and how to take the process forward to ascertain the true cost of your products and processes. Contents include: *Definition and principles of social and environmental accounting *Accounting implications *Corporate reporting implications *International approaches
