This special issue is a collection of thoughtful, timely and innovative papers on a critical topic and offers accounting's response to the challenge of climate change. With appraisals of influential authors spanning a range of disciplines, this volume incorporates constructs from the science of climate change into the sustainability discourse. Stimulating the debate are contributions from scientists who have extrapolated advances in atmospheric, water and ecosystem science to management control systems, as well as scholars bringing Buddhist and Gandhian philosophic insights into accountability constructs. Uniquely, the scientists, in teasing out the management implications of their disciplines, have gone the extra distance in providing an opportunity for interdisciplinary research recognising social constructivist perspectives. Ever aware of accounting's mutability in its pursuit of measure, and its classical economic formulation's obscuring paths of inquiry, these contributors pursue holistic theories and new ways of conceptualising, extending understanding and deepening possibilities. The authors - eminent atmospheric scientists, contributors to the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), authorities on Buddhism, leaders in Schumacher institutes, influential international scholars and sustainability researchers with cutting-edge publications - have dedicated their practice to advancing social and accounting practices by transforming our very ways of thinking toward enlightened and inspired social action and systems.
