This volume is of considerable importance as it provides concrete evidence from the US, UK, Germany and other countries that...treating pollution is an expense; preventing it is an investment.' Jacqueline Aloisi de Larderel, Director, UNEP IE. 'The Green Bottom Line promises the start of a more concerted international effort to raise awareness of the benefits of, and possibilities for, advancing environmental accounting.' Susan McLaughlin, US Environmental Protection Agency. 'The Green Bottom Line demonstrates that many companies can benefit by getting a better understanding of the financial costs and benefits of environmental action. It also provides information and insight on what they can do in practice. I wish it had been around when we started our own environmental accounting journey in the early 1990s!' William Blackburn, Vice-President, Environmental, Health & Safety, Baxter International. 'Environment-related management accounting is an essential tool for tomorrow's business. As managers of one of the largest green funds, the Storebrand Scudder Environmental Value Fund, we will certainly expect that the companies we invest in have understood its precepts and are implementing some of the practical accounting measures that are outlined in The Green Bottom Line.' Jan-Olaf Willums, Senior Vice-President, Storebrand, Norway. 'This book...will, I am sure, make a significant contribution to our better understanding of environmental accounting.' Ian Ash, Director, BT Corporate Communications. 'A very accurate reflection of how current managerialist thinking on environmental issues is shaping up. An essential addition to any environmental accounting library.' Professor Rob Gray, CSEAR, University of Dundee. 'Thorough and highly readable...From basic environmental accounting concepts to the thicket of full-cost accounting, the authors nimbly guide readers through the pitfalls and possibilities. An excellent resource.' The Green Business Letter. 'A hands-on, useful book.' Business Ethics. 'A book well worth reading.' Handbook of Management Accounting. 'This publication is a good guidance book to environment-related management accounting as it gives the context, definitions, and doesn't just theorize but shows applications.' International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. 'The Green Bottom Line is an important book which examines corporate environmental policy from an accounting standpoint. If companies can demonstrate that green is not only good but yields better business results then detractors will disappear like chimneys in a smoke free zone.' European Quality
