En torno a la evolución de la investigación en contabilidad social y medioambiental

Carlos Larrinaga González

Resumen


La intención de este documento es caracterizar la evolución de la investigación en contabilidad social y medioambiental, para ofrecer una visión de conjunto –sin ser sistemática ni exhaustiva– sobre este campo académico. Inicialmente se analiza la evolución de este campo de investigación a la luz de diferentes perspectivas teóricas, como el enfoque normativo, el marco conceptual y el paradigma de la utilidad para la toma de decisiones. Luego se exponen las teorías descriptivas aplicadas al reporte de información social y medioambiental de las empresas desde los enfoques de la teoría de los grupos de interés, la teoría de la legitimidad y la teoría institucional. El texto hace precisiones conceptuales que favorecen la comprensión de esta clasificación y advierte las posibilidades de otros enfoques más progresistas para guiar el estudio de la temática.
