A corporation’s accountability extends beyond financial disclosures to shareholders – it has responsibilities that are much broader than merely generating shareholder wealth. Stakeholders are groups that are affected by and can affect corporations. Sustainability Accounting and Reporting is a mechanism used by corporations to keep them accountable to stakeholders when it comes to their social and environmental impacts.
In this course, you’ll cover fundamental concepts of corporate sustainability and will explore how sustainable development issues influence company accounting and reporting practices. You’ll also learn contemporary approaches and techniques to account for a company’s social, economic, and environmental impacts.
