Synopsis

Concerns about the survival of planet earth and the role played by organisations in creating a sustainable environment have triggered the need for information that is useful for formulating strategy and making decisions. This course is designed to provide the necessary skills for managers to obtain such information. It will help decision makers incorporate environmental costs in their management of processes and products, supply chain, investment, performance appraisal and greenhouse emissions trading. Environmental management accounting allows decision makers to access information which may lead to increased cost savings and reductions in an organisation's environmental impact. With the skills provided in this course managers will have the opportunity to increase their organisation's performance both in financial and environmental terms.
