Sustainability, Environment and Professional Bodies

” What adds even more urgency to the debate about professionalism and its role in environmental discourse is a simple fact. Approaching sustainability from any other angle other than that of putting the environment first carries enormous risk. In essence, to do anything less than concentrate on the eco-systems that underpin our societies and our economies is to miss the point. The debate about sustainability and its definition is an irrelevant waste of valuable time. If we don’t find solutions to the problems presented by ecological sustainability, the problems of social or economic sustainability won’t need solutions. “ – From a Foreword by Christopher Sheldon for an issue of Greener Management International.

As the journal of the international environmental management community, this special issue is guest edited by Chris and offers critical perspectives on the emergence of an environmental sustainability profession.
