To date, both internal and external corporate environmental reporting and management systems have focused on physical inputa€“output measures. However, external stakeholders are increasingly demanding that organisations provide more financial information about the costs and benefits of their environmental actions. As environmental costs rise, internal decision-makers are also seeking such information to ensure that money is well spent. Beyond basic compliance, many companies will not countenance environmental actions for which a qbusiness caseq cannot be made. A number of companies a€“ such as Baxter, BT, Xerox, Zeneca and others a€“ are now beginning to develop a better understanding of the costs and benefits of environmental action. The US Environmental Protection Agency has also done considerable work on models designed to understand the qfull costsq of pollution control investments, with the aim of demonstrating that a€“ when these are properly considered a€“ pollution prevention can be a more cost-effective alternative. The Green Bottom Line brings together much of the world's leading research and best-practice case studies on the topic. Divided into four sections, covering qGeneral Conceptsq, qEmpirical Studiesq, qCase Studiesq and qImplementationq, the book includes case studies from the US EPA's Environment Accounting Programme and contributions from authors at institutions including the IMD, INSEAD, Tellus Institute and the World Resources Institute. It constitutes a state-of-the-art collection.These include specifications for the quality of coatings and final finish for the autobody of the Neon. If the autobody does not pass Chryslera#39;s quality inspections, PPG does not get paid (unless the problem can be linked to a Chrysler error).
