The EPA site offers a great introduction of FCA, as well as uses, applications, and benefits of the sustainable method.
This website examines the cost relationships that exist between businesses, the environment, and the government. The concepts underlying full cost accounting measures are explained, including the categorization of the costs of externalities that have been previously ignored in traditional accounting practices.
