*********************************


"Contemporary Environmental Accounting: Issues, Concepts and Practice" has
been written by two of the world's leading experts in the field in order to
provide the most comprehensive and state-of-the-art textbook on
environmental accounting yet attempted. The book is suitable for both
undergraduate and graduate students and their teachers, professional
accountants, and corporate and organisational managers. Although no prior
knowledge of environmental accounting is necessary to understand the
critical issues at stake, academic accountants will also find that the book
provides a useful introduction to the topic.

The goals of the book are to discuss and illustrate contemporary conceptual
approaches to environmental accounting; to make readers aware of crucial
controversial topics; and to offer practical examples of how the concepts
have been applied throughout Europe, North America and Australia. In order
to increase the usefulness of the book for relevant courses, each chapter
concludes with a set of questions for review. This book is essential reading
for all those who are interested in how environmental issues influence
accounting.

*****************************

"In this key resource, Stefan Schaltegger and Roger Burritt provide not only
early elements of a lingua franca but also a clear, professional set of
briefings on an extraordinary range of issues, from contingent environmental
liabilities and tradable emission allowances to eco-asset sheets and
stakeholder involvement  the book as a whole will handsomely repay study
both by business people and by the growing range of individuals,
organisations and institutions who companies are coming to consider as
stakeholders. I suspect that this will soon be among the best-thumbed books
in my own collection."

John Elkington, Chairman, SustainAbility Ltd; Chairman, Environmental and
Social Accounting Committee, UK Association of Chartered Certified
Accountants (ACCA); Member, EU Consultative Forum on Sustainable Development


"Better information flows are essential for supporting companies' total
quality management, eco-efficiency, sustainable development and
environmental reporting initiatives. This book contains extensive
discussions of the possibilities for boosting such initiatives through
environmental accounting. Readers will come away with a much better
understanding of the myriad of issues and opportunities that lie in
improving the flow of financial and ecological information in firms."

Susan McLaughlin, US Environmental Protection Agency, Environmental
Accounting Project


"Schaltegger and Burritt's book is an important and timely contribution to
the ongoing quest for new forms of corporate disclosure which integrate
financial, environmental and social reporting."

Patrick Ponting, National President, CPA Australia


"Schaltegger and Burritt can be credited with highlighting in their text the
importance for management of the link between value added and environmental
impact added as a general definition of eco-efficiency...This book makes a
valuable contribution to the corporate sector's gradual adoption of
environmental accounting systems which will allow us to measure how heavily
we tread on the planet and thus learn to live within the capacity of its
ecosystems."

Claude Martin, Director General, World Wide Fund for Nature


"It is important that environmental accounting and environmental reporting
are researched and developed to improve the usefulness of the information
supplied to investors. And it is important that guidelines of a global
nature are developed and included in future financial reporting. This book
addresses how to develop accounting systems and an accounting model with
such aims in mind."

Stig Enevoldsen, Chairman, International Accounting Standards Committee;
Partner, Deloitte & Touche, Copenhagen


"The development of key performance indicators for sustainable development
will provide the logical framework for setting targets and driving
continuous improvement across operations and for developing standards of
reporting and verification  'Contemporary Environmental Accounting'
provides an important link between environmental and financial performance
and paves the way for the more difficult task of accounting for
social/ethical conduct."

Andy Oliver, Vice-President, Health, Safety and Environment, Shell
International
