The environment needs to be protected. Well, this is what the universal "we" has agreed upon. So, there is an environment. And this environment needs human protectors, human managers. Between 2008 and 2012 I studied environmental managers in a corporation (a multinational Fortune 50 company).1 A key question emerging from this work is: which environment is being protected - or managed? Does more than one, singular, environment exist?
