Environmental Cost Accounting provides an introduction to the dynamic subject of corporate environmental accounting.

It also illustrates how leading UK companies are already adding value and reducing risk through the use of innovative environmental accounting techniques and methodologies.

The second part of the book presents an environmental accounting tool kit which focuses on external cost accounting. The methodology detailed in this section provides a tool to estimate the environmental sustainability of a company's activities and operations.
