The management and balancing of social, environmental and economic sustainability is one of the most complex and urgent challenges facing both private and public sector organizations today; with these challenges of sustainability posing many risks to, and many opportunities for, advancing the aims and performance of organizations. Accounting and accountability processes and practices provide key tools to help organizations to more effectively identify and manage the risks and opportunities of sustainability.

Popular features from the first edition are retained, whilst recent developments in theory and practice are accounted for. New substantive chapters on water resource accounting, carbon accounting, and decision making have been introduced and the book continues to benefit from a host of expert contributors from around the world, including Jesse Dillard, Rob Gray, Craig Deegan.

This comprehensive and authoritative textbook will continue to be a key resource for students of accounting and sustainability, as well as being a vital tool for researchers.

Product Description


'This book is a useful contribution as an update to the traditional world of ‘ESG’ and ‘triple bottom line’ which has been on the agenda for some years.'

Paul Druckman, Chief Executive Officer, The International Integrated Reporting Council

'In a still emerging field Sustainability accounting and accountability gives a comprehensive overview of the state of play and puts the developments to date in a rich context. In addition to theoretical reflections the authors address practical challenges as a basis for future discussions. Sincerely recommended to those who will meet sustainability during their professional career, which includes accounting and MBA students, and to those who want to get an overview of the topic.'

Wim Bartels, Global Head Sustainability Reporting & Assurance at KPMG, the Netherlands

'A key theme in sustainability accounting and accountability, one that runs explicitly through this book, is that critique is energising, life giving. This book challenges and encourages you to think differently. It makes you realise that when accounting for sustainability gets too comfortable, it cannot be sustainable.'

Chris Humphrey, Professor of Accounting, University of Manchester, UK

'This book addresses big questions about sustainability and outlines and illustrates the uses, possibilities and limitations of accounting and accountability. This makes for a well-integrated and powerful contribution.'

Jeremy Moon, Professor, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark.

Praise for the previous edition:

'Any researcher beginning work, or intending to continue work in this area, will benefit from reading this book which clearly updates positions recorded in the literature to date, thus making it a 'must read'.' - Reg Mathews, The British Accounting Review

'An excellent sourcebook for sustainability accounting.' Martin Freedman, The Accounting Review

'This much needed book ... is a useful guide for students, teachers, researchers and policy-makers in the field of sustainability accounting' Taran Patel, European Accounting Review
