AOM 2009 Annual Meeting
Published: April 14, 2009

The meeting theme, "Green Management Matters," encourages us to consider how our ongoing scholarly activities-including teaching, research and service--might shape and be shaped by society's increasing concern about responsible stewardship of the natural environment. For many of us, the connection between our work and the issue of environmental sustainability is not obvious. Yet making this connection might be a powerful means to increasing the relevance of our scholarship, examine the important relationship between management and environmental sustainability, and consider the question of how our work can inform managers and students who wish to better understand why and how "Green Management Matters."
