The purpose of this article is to present certain aspects regarding environmental auditand how it is perceived by the accounting profession, especially by financial auditors. The mainobjectives taken into account when writing the article was to define the concept of environmental audit,to present how financial auditors get involved within environmental audit, both internationally and inRomania. The scientific approach is based on information from national literature, European andinternational practice regarding environmental audit and the implication of accounting professionalsin this activity. The results of the research conducted in this paper have shown that the accountingprofession at international level, such as the case of New Zeeland, as well as at national level, is onlyslightly involved in environmental audit due to the fact that this type of audit is an activity that is notmandatory, being used for the entity’s own use as opposed to financial audit, which is mandatory andis stipulated by accounting regulations in force and is standardized.
