Call for papers: "Green Production and Management"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Manufacturing Technology and Management.

With the aim of providing a channel of communication between academics, researchers and managers to disseminate knowledge of how to manage in a green environment, the subjects explored in this special issue will assume a particular emphasis on modern organisations.
 
Terms such as sustainability, recycling, re-use, low cost, waste reduction high productivity – not only from an environmental perspective but also from an organisational perspective – are only some among many others with which organisations and researchers are concerned, and which require a break from traditional management paradigms. Indeed, current organisations need to be managed through different models wherein innovation and change are keywords as they drive the organisation to success.
 
At this level, green management appears as a new way to manage, consider and understand organisations, making them more strategic and competitive in the markets in which they operate in present and look to operate in the future.
 
Taking into account these concerns, this special issue aims to contribute to the exchange of experiences and thoughts about the state of research in the green management area, as well as the future direction of this field of research. It also aims to provide support to academics and researchers, along with those working in the engineering and management fields who need to deal with practices, policies and strategies related to green production and management work issues.
 
The issue will ultimately be of use to academics, researchers, human resources managers, managers, engineers and other professionals in areas related to green production and management, and requests that contributors identify the theoretical and practical implications of their work, in order to contribute to a better understanding of the subject.
 
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Green production and management
  • Traditional management versus green management
  • Green production
  • Green management
  • HRM politics and practices in green organisations
  • Green business management
  • Organisational friendly processes management
  • Green management and productivity
