Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Rarely does a book come along that serves as a catalyst and vanguard. It points us in new directions and opens our minds to possibilities unimagined. Such books generate intellectual excitement and energy. In my 40 years as an industrial/organizational (I/O) psychologist I have read very few books with such potential. Green Organizations is one of them." - From the foreword by Paul M. Muchinsky; Joseph M. Bryan Distinguished Professor, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

"The Huffman and Klein volume brings a multi-disciplinary approach to the topic of environmental sustainability, making increasingly possible a realization of the green organization concept. Disciplines brought to bear in this book include human resource management, business management, technology, ethics, atmospheric sciences, and I/O, social, environment, occupational, and humanitarian psychology. Clearly, the volume broadens and enhances the areas considered by the Applied Psychology Series."- Walter C. Borman, PDRI

"One of the most pressing challenges our planet faces today is environmental sustainability in an ever-changing world that consumes more and more precious resources. I/O psychology has much to contribute in the effort to encourage behaviors at the individual and organizational levels that are environmentally friendly, and this trail-blazing book shows the way." - Wayne F. Cascio, Ph.D., The Business School University of Colorado Denver

"Every I-O psychologist should read this important volume. The wide range of authors and disciplines represented is intellectually stimulating and satisfying. Together, the volume editors and chapter authors push readers to ask important questions about their professional responsibilities while also offering a foundation upon which to begin building new scientific and practical knowledge for creating and managing environmentally sustainable organizations. The future begins here!" - Susan E. Jackson, PhD, Distinguished Professor, Rutgers University

"Huffman and Klein have assembled an impressive, cross-disciplinary group of scientist-practitioners with direct experiences in the places where many of the most important decisions for future earth-dwellers are made—work organizations. Their forays into applying what we know about levers for affecting organizational change make for compelling reading for those of us interested in broader change, as well." - Robert G. Jones, Missouri State University Department of Psychology
