Abstract

Driven by economic globalization and the global nature of environmental issues, we have witnessed unprecedented economic growth and tangible progress on many key development issues. Among them, organizations in various fields play an essential role in realizing global sustainable development goals. Therefore, environmental protection has gradually become an essential factor that cannot be ignored in the development of enterprises. However, traditional accounting can no longer satisfy the information needed by enterprises in environmental management and decision-making. Therefore, applying environmental management accounting (EMA) in the sustainable development of enterprises is the future trend of enterprise development. This paper mainly analyzes the role that EMA can play in the long-term development of enterprises in the future, selects 148 relevant articles from the Web of Science (WoS) database, draws a co-word cluster, and analyzes the annual trend, knowledge structure, key areas, and publication sources, discusses the theoretical and practical significance. It also makes recommendations for companies driving EMA adoption in their organizations.
