ORGANIZATIONS & THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT (ONE)
Program Chair: Judith Walls, Nanyang Technological University (NTU); email@example.com
Specific ONE Domain: The ONE division is devoted to research – theory, methods, empirics, and practice – regarding relationships of organizations to the natural environment. Major topics include: corporate sustainability, environmental strategies and performance, sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship, sustainable business models, industrial ecology and the circular economy, green human resource management and organizational behaviour, environmental reporting and carbon disclosure, environmental leadership, green marketing and sustainable consumption, environmental stakeholders and social movements, corporate environmental politics, environmental attitudes and decision making, and international or comparative dimensions of these topics. As the natural environment is integral in all individual, organizational and societal activity, the division encourages holistic, integrative, and interdisciplinary analysis. It promotes joint exploration of these topics with all other disciplines present in the Academy.
Special Instructions: The ONE division invites papers and symposia that address all aspects of the relationship between organizations and the natural environment. The ONE division should be able to contribute significantly to the 2018 AOM theme of ‘Improving Lives’. The ONE division is particularly well suited to the role organizations play in positively affection physical, psychological, social, and financial health of individuals, groups, communities, countries, regions, or society globally. In the Academy’s announcement of the 2018 theme, a number of elements are directly relevant to the ONE division.
“Improving Lives” is a central theme to the ONE division. Our scholarly community has an opportunity to explore the context, structures, and processes that lead to improving lives, considering the entire supply chain of products and services. We can look at employees and managers and the decisions made around Improving Lives. We can consider facilitating factors and also barriers to improving lives through planetary health. We can reflect on the role of institutional factors, and the agendas of public policy makers. We can explore the capabilities and collaborations to be built within and beyond firm boundaries.
The ONE division encourages paper and symposium submissions that reflect on the question of how organizations help to improve health and well-being in society and our planet. Joint symposium proposals are welcome, as the theme of improving lives draws on multi-disciplinary approaches across other Academy divisions and interest groups.
As well as the Call for Submissions, the ONE division also makes a Call for Reviewers. If you plan to submit a paper, please also plan to review.
