Purpose - The article presents a new approach to implementing cost accounting in enterprises. By applying the Full Cost Accounting (FCA) approach, accounting has shown the additional external costs adding to the traditional costs of the business.

At the same time, FCA also shows businesses' environmental and social impacts.

Findings- Our research finds a new approach, which is the application of FCA in enterprises, linking and internalizing external costs, and assessing enterprises' impact on environmental and social sustainability. The article also shows the correlation and influence of factors on the application of FCA.
Social implications - The article guides how to apply FCA in business. This is one of the measures to effectively use resources, contributing to sustainable development for businesses and society.
