This paper investigates the use of the eco-efﬁciency measurement. It also analyses whether environ-mental planning, business strategies, operational practices, environmental management system certiﬁ-cation and environmental management accounting inﬂuence eco-efﬁciency. The ﬁve organisational factors express formal elements of the organisational structure. The research design consists of a mixed method approach with a set of information composed of a survey of 65 companies plus 14 interviews. The results show a poor use of eco-efﬁciency measurement and the positive inﬂuence of just environ-mental planning and environmental management accounting. What stands out is the urgency to encourage companies to have more articulated measurement and evaluation tools for analyse the interplay between environmental and economic performance (i.e. eco-efﬁciency). The paper extends empirical studies on environment-related management accounting tools. This study also underlines the importance of analysing the organisational dimension which is fundamental for promoting the inte-gration of environmental issues into management control.
