How does your environmental accounting measure up?

Environmental accounting is a challenging proposition:

  • Inherent complexity in the environmental liability reporting
  • Unexpected expenditures and accounting adjustments
  • Focus from regulators
  • Unknown qualitative and quantitative efforts
  • Difficulty of quantifying future economic impacts

While the accounting standards may appear to be clear, interpretation and application of those standards are anything but.
