Environmental protection expenditure

Environmental protection expenditure is the additional identifiable expenditure aimed at preventing, reducing or repairing the potential or effective damage caused by the company’s activities. This definition is based on the recommendation issued by the Conseil national de la comptabilité (the French national accounting council) on 21 October 2003, which, in turn, is based on the European recommendation of 30 May 2001.
