Case: Telecomunicaciones del Sur, Ecuador <p>Environmental accounting arose from the need to understand the impact of an organization on the environment through its activities, recording the elements related to these effects in the company’s reports. In this regard, this study focuses on reducing the environmental damage caused by Telecomunicaciones del Sur by identifying its environmental costs. For this purpose, this research was developed under the positivist paradigm, with a descriptive-explanatory scope. The historical-logical and deductive methods were used. It is concluded that the organization does not maintain an environmental management system, does not have financial resources allocated for the acquisition of ecological materials, and its workers have little knowledge of environmental accounting and its regulatory provisions in Ecuador.
