This paper looks at the role of sustainable development within degree programmes dominated by the need to satisfy professional accreditation requirements, examining how far these require or allow coverage of sustainability and how teachers can respond to the position.  It concludes that the strongest way to enhance consideration of sustainability issues would be for the professional bodies to reflect this in their criteria.
