Sustainability requires companies to develop in an economically, environmentally & socially sustainable manner.
Corporate sustainable development in turn requires movement towards cleaner production. In order to recognize the potential from cleaner production - reduced costs & fewer environmental impacts through the reduced use of materials - environmental management accounting (EMA) is a necessary information management tool. Environmental Management Accounting for Cleaner Production reveals a set of tools for companies to collect, evaluate & interpret the information they need to estimate their potential to use cleaner production to realize cost savings & to make the best decisions about the available cleaner production options. EMA is therefore the key for driving environmental progress, cost savings, increased competitiveness & corporate sustainability through the means of cleaner production.
