This volume's focus on the environmental accounting of supply chain processes is of particular relevance because these processes supply data about the environmental impact of relationships between business organisations, an area where the boundary separating internal and external accounting is ill-defined.
Here, contributors advocate what they term 'accounting for cooperation' as a more environmentally positive complement to the paradigmatic practice of 'accounting for competition'.
