Abstract: The article discusses factors that influence accounting for carbon dioxide emissions. The process is said to involve determining the information that would be useful and the accountant's ability to make meaningful measurements. The World Resources Institute and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WRI/WBCSD) developed a three-layer emissions accounting approach for corporate inventories which can accommodate different foci and levels of engagement.
