about this item

This book examines a new topic in Human Resource Management (HRM), green – or environmental – HRM, analysing the role humans play in environmental management at work and environmental behaviours at workplaces around the world.

The book begins with a focus on negative workplace green behaviours (e.g. toxic chemical leaks, air pollution, contaminated waste etc.), and what such environmental problems mean for workers, managers and society as a whole. However, rather than concentrate on direct, causal links between human workplace behaviours and any environmental consequences, the book takes a more practical focus, seeking to explain and assess ways in which managers and employees can make organisations greener.

The book outlines relevant theory and literature on how HRM is ‘going green’, and details real-life organisational examples derived from original and secondary empirical research to illuminate the implications of adopting Green HRM practices for relevant stakeholders. In doing so, the book offers a new, unique academic contribution to both the HRM and environmental management literatures.
