Abstract This report summarizes an Environmental Cost Accounting Benchmarking Study of five major U.S. and Mexican companies currently involved in developing environmental accounting systems. The purpose of the benchmarking study, which was conducted from June 1995 through June 1996, was to compare environmental accounting approaches in oil and chemical companies whose activities have significant environmental impact. The purpose of the study was not to identify a single best system for environmental cost accounting, since requirements of such systems vary with industry, location, corporate culture, and many other aspects of a company. Rather, the purpose was to allow the Partners to discuss the form and functions of the environmental cost accounting systems they are developing or using, as well as to discuss uses for the cost information yielded by such systems. This report summarizes the information shared in the Benchmarking.
