Author: J. Dixon
Document Type: Monograph
This B886 Business Research Project was undertaken on behalf of the National Rivers Authority (NRA) into I Environmental Accounting. The Consultants Report concludes that it is vital for the NRA to he at the forefront of the environmental accounting debate, which is still in its infancy, and to achieve this aim will require full management commitment. To ensure that the organisation is in a strong strategic position, essential when it becomes the Environment Agency in 1995, the report recommends the development of an I Environmental Management System (EMS), encompassing four areas: Environmental Audit; Environmental Policy; Environmental Reporting; Environmental Accounting. The Report examines current theoretical perspectives, NRA management, monitoring and control procedures, and its financial and information systems areas using a practical approach involving desk research, interviews, and a questionnaire. It examines best practice in selected organisations known to be interested in the environment, and it suggests a timescale for the implementation of the recommended actions.
