9780415630641: Accounting for Biodiversity

‘Biodiversity’ at its simplest, refers to the variety of species inhabiting Planet Earth. It is essential to the well-being of the planet. There is now a scientific consensus around the current ongoing crisis in biodiversity arising from both climate change and human activities. Experts believe we are in the middle of a mass extinction of biodiversity with devastating consequences for our planet.

Accounting for Biodiversity explores the need for companies to actively protect, conserve and improve biodiversity within their sphere of operation. The 14 chapters written by a selected team of experts investigate the ways in which companies are embracing their responsibility through a variety of biodiversity initiatives and innovative models designed to improve the recording, reporting and valuing of biodiversity. Global case studies look at biodiversity accounting in Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe and South America. Overall, this book provides a comprehensive set of reflections on accounting for biodiversity and recommendations for the future.

This book is essential reading for all those interested in the contribution that accounting can make to the preservation of biodiversity. As we see increasing awareness of the importance of sustainability and ecological responsibility in business activity it is relevant and should prove informative to students, managers, accountants and those in business more generally. It is also important for all those interested in conserving biodiversity.

Review:

'The book is a very welcome and long-overdue manifestation of Mike Jones’ long-standing fascination with - and championing of - the crucial relationships between bio-diversity and accounting. It brings together for the first time a diverse array of experiments, speculations and experiences and provides a much needed- state-of-the-art in accounting and biodiversity. The book will be seminal.' R. H. Gray, University of St Andrews, UK

'Addressing the emerging issues in accounting for biodiversity, this text offers a comprehensive coverage of issues in biodiversity accounting approaches, models and indicators examined from both theoretical and practice application perspectives. Authored by leading scholars in the field and spanning developed and developing countries, this is an essential foundation text.' –Lee D. Parker, Joint Editor of Accounting, Accountability and Auditing Journal  RMIT University, Australia

"In this edited volume, Jones (Univ. of Bristol, UK) has done an effective job integrating wide-ranging topics into a coherent argument for identifying values for biodiversity. Summing Up: Recommended" - B. J. Peterson, Central College, Choice reviews, January 2015
