Sustainability is a word that is included often in the current lexicon. In the academic world, the American Accounting Association devoted a plenary session to sustainability accounting in its 2009 annual meeting and the theme of the 2009 Academy of Management meeting was also on green management and sustainability. Many MBA programs have developed a special track focusing on sustainability, which suggests that there is some demand for the graduates of programs specializing in environmental issues. Is this all a fad and just rhetoric or will this emphasis on sustainability lead to discussions, plans, and programs that will be helpful in saving the planet?
