Overview

Managing Human Resources for Environmental Sustainability

Businesses are being pressured by governments, customers, and employees alike to adopt environmentally-friendly policies and practices. Managing Human Resources for Environmental Sustainability examines this growing trend in detail and highlights the central role of employees, I-O psychologists, and human resource management in achieving environmental sustainability goals in applied organizational settings.

Written by a diverse range of contributors, the book offers perspectives from authors who represent developed and emerging economies, span a variety of industries, and embody a mix of applied and academic backgrounds. This diversity is evident in the book's eight case studies that show how environmentally sustainable practices are being implemented in different organizations. The settings range from the United States to Germany, the U.K., and Uganda, and also include cases of multinational corporations, such as Procter & Gamble and 3M, whose operations span the globe. Managing Human Resources for Environmental Sustainability spans the full range of macro and micro perspectives–including bottom-line impact, a review of legal requirements and political currents, and practical and professional implications of sustainability in all parts of the HR process.

The environmental sustainability actions of many organizations may have once seemed merely public relations gestures. Now such actions seem more likely to become an organizational way of life, based on profit as well as principles of good governance, undergirded by law.

Many I-O practitioners are involved in the creation and implementation of initiatives that produce positive environmental results. Managing Human Resources for Environmental Sustainability fills a gap in the literature by providing a resource that explores both case studies and empirical research, and examines how the green revolution is transforming workforces and workplaces globally.
