Abstract

Accounting for Sustainability: Practical Insights . Hopwood, Anthony, Jeffery Unerman and Jessica Fries ( eds ). Earthscan , London , 2010 . xxvi + 258 pp. Price £25 (paperback). ISBN 978‐1‐84971‐067 .

The back‐cover blurb claims that this compilation of eight case studies, all UK‐ or EU‐based, ‘show[s] in detail how accounting for sustainability works in practice’. In summary: not well. Contributions by 21 accountants, six of them professors, show that if this is the best that business can do, then accounting is not yet contributing much to sustainability, even with the imprimatur of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles.
