Abstract

Green accounting is a path for expansion. By using this as a tool, many of the environmental costs can be reduced by proper decision making and also by implementing greener technologies. This paper’s main objective is to understand what green accounting or green reporting means and also its importance. It also aims to find out how important it is for a company to implement green accounting and keep a track of what is receiving from the environment and what it is giving back in return. This would help in the efficient use of resources and it would also help in reducing pollution to an extent. Green accounting plays a major role in the corporate social responsibility (CSR) of a firm. Through primary data collection in this study, we also try to understand people’s perspectives towards green accounting. Though is it a difficult task to implement green accounting in each and every organisation, an attempt is made to show how green accounting helps in environmental sustainability. The organisations must take initiative to implement green accounting in all the levels of the organisation. The government must take strict actions is the environmental norms are not followed and also penalties must be imposed for it. The responsibility towards the environment has become one of the most important factors in the corporate social responsibility of a firm.
