Since environmental protection is becoming a global issue, it is ever more necessary to develop an efficient environmental accounting in accordance with specific regulations.
This paper aims to demonstrate precisely the role of accounting in providing the information required to quantify the environmental impact of the activities run by companies. Starting from the identification and evaluation of the environmental costs, we can
determine the way in which these costs are incurred by the various economic actors. Nevertheless, environmental protection is a costly activity and the identification and quantification of the polluting factors is not always possible. Therefore, it is necessary to find new, future-oriented solutions that include integrated approaches to environmental protection and lead to better planning and significant results in this field.
Keywords: green accounting, environmental costs, environmental protection, polluting factors
