Abstract and Keywords

Given the current strength of media concern with climate change, it is perhaps surprising that this issue has remained somewhat tangential to writers within critical and mainstream management studies. This article considers why greater attention must be paid to the natural environment as well as to the tensions that are raised by such study. The relative inattention to the natural environment within management and organization studies (MOS) is in marked contrast to that apparent in Western media. Barely a day goes by without some media report concerning climate change, and the subject has moved increasingly center stage within mainstream political agendas. In part, this reflects the perception of a growing ‘scientific consensus’ that climate change and environmental degradation are proceeding apace.

Keywords: natural environment, climate change, management studies, organization studies, Western media, environmental degradation
