[Extract] The aim of this chapter is to enhance HR professionals’ understanding of the role of greening of HRM as a subset of sustainable HRM to engage both non-environmental and specialised environmental HR to implement environmental management to achieve economic and environmental aspects of corporate sustainability. In this chapter in particular HRM refers to HR practices to engage both non-environmental and specialised environmental employees because it is generally perceived in management that the role of specialised environmental employees (i.e. environmental engineers) is critical for environmental management. To achieve the aim of this chapter, two background sections are initially included separately to provide improved understanding of the literature on EMS and the role of HRM in EMS. This enhanced understanding of these two strands of literature will facilitate HR and management professionals to appreciate how the proposed new framework on the synthesis of green HRM extends the existing literature on green HRM to achieve simultaneously proorganisational (economic) and pro-environmental outcomes of corporate sustainability.
