Organizations and the Natural Environment Constitution
(Includes two amendments, to articles IV and IX, approved on August 6, 2012 at the Academy of Management Meeting in Boston.
Article I - Name
The name of this organization is the Organizations and the Natural Environment Division of the Academy of Management, or, ONE, referred to either by letter or as a complete word-acronym.
Article II - Purposes and Strategies
The Organizations and the Natural Environment Division is dedicated to the advancement of research, teaching, and service in the area of relationships between organizations and the natural environment. We believe that these interactions may be among the most significant components in the continued existence, development, and management of human organizations and societies. The pollution of air, water, and land, and the depletion of both renewable and non-renewable resources as a result of actions of formal organizations are the most obvious manifestations of these interactions and relationships. This Division focuses its scholarly attention on the status, causes, and effects of these and other opportunities and problems that human organizations and societies encounter in co-existing with the natural environment, whether that environment is the workplace, the local community, or the global ecosystem.
