The importance of environmental sustainability is becoming greater due to its contribution to greater value for customers and convergence of the circular economy and Industry 4.0, which can improve the efficiency of limited resource use. Based on the information from environmental accounting, managers can more effectively assess the economic impacts that corporate environmental performance generates on the company's operations. Environmental performance can be improved by developing new products and production processes in order to minimize the potential negative environmental impact. Many companies have introduced the practice of corporate self-regulation, which includes environmental management systems and reporting on the company's non-financial performance. The obtained results of the conducted empirical research could help managers  make optimal decisions at the right time, and perform effective monitoring and rank of environmental and economic business indicators during the time.
