Environmental Management Accounting and Cleaner Production
Sprache des Tagungstitel:
While in the public discussion traffic policy is wellknown as an essential area and even a difficult challenge of sustainable development one important aspect, namely traffic as a management field of companies has been underexposed up to now. So for example you can hardly find specific informations or facts about the transportation activities of firms neither from the economic point of view nor form the ecological perspective. Due to this ignorance in most cases data about the transportation of goods or about the employees´ official mobility are not available.
Facing that situation presently an empirical study has been elaborated at the University of Linz which aims to identify and to analyse the attitudes and interests of companies concerning this management field. In particular this study is focussed on transportation activities caused by material procurement and by the distribution of goods.
