This thesis by publication includes five articles which discuss the principles and practices of traditional sustainability accounting in Bangladesh. Modern accounting only recently started to embrace environmental and social values. The research however makes the argument that the traditional practices, local knowledge, inter-generational wisdom and eco-spirituality of rural Bangladesh are the real basis for sustainability accounting. Without formal quantification, this traditional sustainability accounting guides people in their activities and lifestyle promoting a culture of sustainability.
