Six Volume Set
Edited by:


February 2013 | 2 760 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
As awareness of global environmental problems spreads, the natural environment has become an area of high strategic significance for organizational managers and other policy makers.

Since scholars turned their attention to the natural environment in the early 1990s, research on corporate environmentalism and organizational greening has become a vibrant field. This major work shows both the variety of rigorous methods being employed in this area as well as the limitations in current research and the need to develop more innovative methods.

Providing a general framework for thinking about corporate environmentalism and the greening of organizations, this collection serves as a foundational resource for those interested in developing new theories, including researchers and students, as well as environmental policy experts in business and government around the world.
