Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is now difficult to deny the influence of human behavior on the natural environment. While a great deal of research has focused on individual's behaviors in private settings (households), few efforts have been undertaken in organizational settings for examining to what extent people at work adopts friendly or harmful behaviors towards the environment. An emerging trend within the organizational literature is that organizations may develop targeted HRM practices that help employees to perform pro-environmental behaviors to achieve environmental sustainability. This special issue seeks to address this issue. Although original empirical works (either quantitative or qualitative) are expected, conceptual papers are also welcome.
