Abstract / Description of output

Definitions of carbon accounting are staggeringly quick to unravel, and this is testament to the expansive efforts looking to operationalise climate aspirations through diverse accounting practices, and through an ever wider array of settings. This diversity of practice also gives rise to a diversity of scholarship that is either ‘doing’ or ‘about’ carbon accounting. Thus, this chapter attempts to provide a structured overview of carbon accounting research across the natural and social sciences, as well as the diversity of methodological and theoretical approaches that have been harnessed to investigate carbon-related matters. We further identify emerging themes and phenomena that are likely to shape this field in the near future and where impactful academic insight is urgently required.
