Special issue on why green management matters
Article Type: Call for papers From: Management Decision, Volume 46, Issue 10
Following the 2007 special issue ``Alleviating poverty through trade'', and the 2008 ``Questions we ask about ethics in a global marketplace'', this is the third in an ongoing series of special issues of Management Decision devoted to matters of ethics, sustainability and corporate social responsibility and woven in with the organising theme of the Academy of Management. In 2009, the theme is Green Management Matters.
The special issue will be edited by Rocky Dwyer and David Lamond and will appear under the title of ``Why green management matters''. It is scheduled for Volume 47,Issue 7 and will appear in August 2009 in CD format, as well as its usual hardcopy version, to coincide with the Academy of Management Conference in Chicago.
Whether dealing with waste management or investment management, today's decision makers are confronted with the ``green'' in those decisions – sustainability, carbon footprints, industrial ecosystems, greenhouse gases, and energy efficiency are some of the elements which are increasingly the ``stuff'' of those decisions, the criteria by which decisions are judged to be more or less sound. This issue seeks to make a contribution to the debate about the ``green'' consistent with its title ``Why green management matters''.
Papers are welcomed that explore green management and the principles which underpin this approach. Questions such as ``Can I just get by through paying someone else to have a smaller carbon footprint?'', ``Should business be my brother's (green) keeper?'', and ``Isn't my responsibility to the shareholders?'' need answers. Conceptual papers, as well as qualitative and quantitative research papers, are welcomed, as they add to the knowledge base about corporate social responsibility and ethics in relation to green management matters.
Submission of the full paper is required by 1 February 2009 for consideration for the special issue. Papers submitted will be subject to a minimum double-blind peer review process to ensure that this special issue maintains the excellent reputation and record of Management Decision.
