Corporate Environmental Organizations: Evolving Business Management Strategies


While there is extensive literature on the evolution of corporate environmental management, there is relatively little information published on the impact that these transitions have had on business management strategy as it relates to the organization and staffing practices for this activity. Ongoing research at the Centre for Environmental Innovation suggests that the current model for environmental staffing and organization is outdated and that the time may be ripe for a fundamental shift in how these activities are managed within corporations. This article provides an overview of how environmental, organizational, and staffing approaches have evolved within the context of events that have unfolded over the past several decades. It suggests what may be in store for the future: realignment along four major activity areas that are disbursed and embedded largely within existing business functions. Movement away from the manner in which environmental activities are currently managed will not be busy and will require business executive leadership.
