ENVIRONMENTAL ACCOUNTING AS A FACTOR OF LOCAL BUSINESS COMPETITIVENESS STIMULATION (THE CASE OF THAILAND)
Today’s system of accounting does not contain sufficient volumes of information about environmental incomes and losses of organizations, therefore, it is nearly impossible to evaluate precisely the efficiency of environmental actions taken and environmental protection systems being implemented in order to maintain and/or increase the environmental balance. One of the key elements in the mechanism increasing the quality of economic performance is the system of environmental accounting.
This study explains both theory and methodology of environmental accounting and also determines its role and place within the system of existing types of accounting and reporting in accordance with the IFRS requirements and also Kyoto Protocol. The presented here organizational economic mechanism of environmental accounting allows implementing the latter at concrete enterprises so that to promote and support more efficient managerial decision-making.
