The purpose of this study is to assess how an activity-based costing (ABC) system can assist the justification of capital investments for green manufacturing systems (GMSs). We provide an investment decision model and a numerical example for the justification of GMS based on the ABC system to include not only the direct performances but also the intangible benefits that are generated by the adoption of GMS. Our findings provide insight into the value of capital investments for a GMS based ABC system and demonstrate the opportunity to reduce pollution while simultaneously improving the value of investment.
