Companies in diverse industries globally are facing greater challenges to understand the environmental implications of their operations. Against this setting, managers have become more acutely aware of the need for greater transparency and environmental accountability when seeking to create organisational value. This subject seeks to enhance a general understanding of the complex ways in which such issues impact the core functions performed by professionals in accounting and business. This includes a consideration of the various reporting frameworks that can be used to report the environmental implications of entity operations, as well the ways in which such information might be incorporated into decisions made within the entity.
