They then go beyond this to explore the limits of the metaphor and what remains to be done through regulation and legislation and with detailed professional procedures in environmental accounting and management and social auditing. They show how much more attention is now being focused by business on delivering more than just financial targets, and make clear where the next steps must be taken in continuing along this trajectory."@en ;
