Facing the actual issues that threaten the world’s biodiversity, the improvement of the accounting of the impacts and dependencies of businesses in relation to natural and human capital is an emergency. Numerous institutional frameworks call for a transformation of the economy toward a stronger sustainability path.
Ecological accounting has a strong interest to support ecological transition. It is a way to integrate the interactions between activities and their environment (natural and social) at the center of the decision system of economic agents.
The objective of the DECLAMER project is to study the conditions and the consequences associated to the adoption of a new accounting model based on strong sustainability principles (the triple depreciation line) in the marine environment. The project is focused on fisheries, shellfish farming and seaweed farming. DECLAMER is organized in three phases: (1) the establishment of indicators to integrate the relations of impact and dependency of activities to natural and human capital; (2) the application of the accounting model and the study of the impact of the model on the entrepreneurs' decisions; and (3) the investigation of the impact of the model on the organization of sectors and more broadly on the institutional environment of marine economy.
DECLAMER develop research work in economics and organization science in an interdisciplinary perspective and with a strong connection to societal issues. The results of the project will be disseminated within the scientific spheres and toward the actors of the marine economy.
