Go Green to Get Green, While Doing Good

In this exercise, students will explore the wide world of eco-friendly accounting to identify a position that sounds interesting to them. Before starting their research and completing this worksheet, engage your students in a class discussion about environmental accounting. As a conversation starter, a high-level overview has been included on the worksheet. Discuss the various benefits of environmental accounting. Not just the benefits to the ecosystem, but all the personal benefits of being a part of this chosen field. Once the worksheets are complete, students should present their job to the class. In addition to introducing each student to more possibilities, this will also allow them to develop their presentation and public speaking skills—which are important for CPAs to have.
