Advances in Environmental Accounting & Management
Environment management and protection are top global priorities. Between cyclones affecting more than 2.6 million people across Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, and tornadoes ripping through the Mid-West in the United States, climate change is front and centre in the public mind.
 
The six papers in this volume of Advances in Environmental Management and Accounting provide much needed information for academics, practitioners and policy makers about environmental accounting and management in Africa. Despite one of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) being Climate Action, very little is known about environmental accounting and management practices in Africa. Including research based on South Africa and Nigeria, two of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, the research here is a significant contribution to understanding these practices.

This volume asks: how useful is environmental and social information to regulators, investors, financial institutions and practitioners? To what extend do food producers report on their water use given that water shortage is among the top 10 global risks? What influences the adoption of environmental management techniques? How do different environmental management practices affect the financial performance of Small and Medium-Sized enterprises? Are environmental management and reporting regulations complied with and if not why?
