Accounting Translation of Corporate Social and Environmental Expenditures in Small and Medium Industry: What Evaluation Approach and what Accounting Scheme?

Christian Ewane, Osée Hanko


The question remains whether societal reporting integrates the field of financial reporting. This old debate is repeated to scrutinize the case of African companies with strong cultural roots, which do not publish alternative societal documents to traditional financial reports. Through stakeholder theory (Jones and Wicks, 1999), this study aims to analyze the phenomenon, by describing the process of accounting recordings for social and environmental information (SEI) identified by the ISO 26 000 standard in an oil Company operating within OHADA Jurisdiction. The results indicate the presence of mandatory SEIs in the financial statements, which visibility depends on the pressure exerted by the State and the accounting regulations in force. Voluntary SEIs are not visible.

Keywords: Social and Environmental Information (SEI); financial reporting; Stakeholder Theory; ISO 26000.
