Given the current changes in the business environment, as a result of awareness of sustainable responsibility, it is necessary to develop new reporting models, both in accounting theory and in practice, evoking the beginning of a repositioning to highlight the social importance of accounting. The complexity of sustainability issues and the means considered as an 'integrating factor' needed to address them, this article lies in a transdisciplinary debate that validates the requirement for a new accounting model. It is intended to lead to progressive decision-making and accountability models to build a key link between the entity and all stakeholders (investors, customers, suppliers, corporate governance agencies, employees and other groups): called sustainability accounting.
Thus, our research proposals on accounting strategies for sustainability propagate indepth analysis to multiple perspectives of performance measurement: strategies on cost analysis in sustainability accounting, strategies and tools for measuring the risk sand performance of entities from the perspective of sustainable development.
