Is it possible to reach sustainable development by using sustainable accounting? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Med eskalerande miljöhot är det självklart att alla ska bidra till ett värnande om miljön och en hållbar utveckling.

Företag kan, frivilligt, utföra hållbarhetsredovisningar för att

legitimera sig inför sina intressenter. Ett bestyrkande från

oberoende part gör hållbarhetsredovisningen, som ligger

utanför traditionell redovisning, mer trovärdig.

Syfte: Syftet med fallstudien är att, utifrån en grundmodell och en

utvidgad modell inom hållbar utveckling granska tre företags hållbarhetsredovisningar, för att i analys och slutsats urskilja om hållbar utveckling kan uppnås genom hållbarhetsredovisningar.

Metod: Fallstudie

Resultat: Med lagar som grund i all redovisning, tillsammans med

normgivande riktlinjer som exempelvis GRI, toppat med företagens vilja att konkurrera och marknadsföra sig via redovisning av miljö- och socialt ansvar, kan resultatet bli att en uppstramning av lagen i nuläget är onödig.

Abstract [en]

Background: With increasing environmental threats a natural state of

mind is that everyone has to join the struggle for a sustainable development. Companies can, voluntarily, use sustainable reporting as a way of having legitimacy to their stakeholders. A higher level of credibility occurs when the sustainable reports are reviewed by a neutral person.

Purpose: The purpose of the case study is that, based on a basic model

and an extended model of sustainable development, three corporate sustainable accountings, to the analysis and conclusion on the identification of sustainable development can be achieved by sustainable accountings.

Method: Case study

Result: With the law as the basis of all accounts, along with standard

guidelines such as the GRI, topped whit the willingness of companies to compete and to market themselves through the accounts of environmental and social responsibility, the result may be that a tightening of the law in the present situation is unnecessary.
