My professional interests are tax-, environmental/CSR/sustainability- and financial accounting.

Through my firm, I sell services concerning:

  • Consultancy for public and private sector enterprises on
    • how to improve their sustainability reporting,
    • compliance with current and upcoming sustainability reporting regulations and standards,
    • relevant scope when hiring assurance services;
  • Give lectures on environmental/CSR/sustainability reporting for various audiences
  • Teaching and supervision at universities:
    • Teach tax law for business and accounting students and real-estate agent students. (I have a text book on tax law “Innføring i skatterett”. It was first published in 1980 by my father, Lars Fallan, and a new edition is available each year to be up to date.)
    • Teach tax behaviour courses on master level
    • Teach environmental/CSR/sustainability reporting, from an accounting perspective, for various types of students
    • I supervise PhD, master and bachelor theses on issues concerning financial-, tax- and environmental/CSR/sustainability accounting.
  • Research
    • I do research within the positive accounting research tradition: empirical studies of corporate and personal behaviour concerning the above mentioned accounting issues. A list of publications is available on this homepage.
  • I also write text books on tax law and (forthcoming) environmental/CSR/sustainability reporting.

My experience on environmental/CSR/sustainability reporting goes back over 20 years, ever since I wrote my master thesis on environmental accounting at NHH in the 1990s. I hold a PhD in environmental/CSR/sustainability reporting from Copenhagen Business School, and have published various research papers on reporting practices, reporting regulations and use of environmental/CSR/sustainability reporting. Over the years I have given advice to several companies on environmental reporting, and I have analytically asessed the reporting of thousands of enterprises/enterprise years for research, teaching or consultancy purposes.

While Norway was at the international forefront on both environmental reporting practices and regulations in the 1980s and -90s, this is not the case anymore. The general, current reporting practices and regulations (incl. enforcement) are not able to ensure provision of useful environmental/CSR/sustainability accounting information for resource allocation and accountability/stewardship purposes (the main demand objectives of accounting). However, material improvements of reporting quality may easily be achieved by most organisations. It becomes necessary to do so as well, because of upcoming EU (and hence Norwegian) regulations on reporting, assurance, skills and enforcement, new international and Nordic accounting standards, public sector and B2B procurement requirements, and massive focus on climate change, UN development goals etc.

If you want to get in touch to discuss assignments concerning sustainability reporting consultancy, teaching, supervision and more, my email is: even.fallan[at]pm.me and my phone number is available at 1881.no/180.no.
