Abstract

Costs relating to companies' impact on the environment are increasing at a dramatic rate. Thus, managing, measuring, and reporting of these costs has become an important issue for managers. Accounting for environmental responsibilities is one of the largest and most challenging issues facing accountants today. This case provides an example of how one company is reacting to the increased pressures for environmental responsibility and how environmental responsibilities affect management accounting, financial reporting, and management control.
