SIOP’s 2012 Leading Edge Consortium is devoted to advancing research and enhancing the practice of environmental sustainability in work settings through employees.
Organizations are increasingly concluding that environmental sustainability is central to their missions. As organizations transform to minimize, mitigate, and neutralize their environmental impact, I-O psychology is uniquely positioned to aid in these efforts.
This meeting will bring together an interdisciplinary team of experts and keynote speakers from industry, psychological research, the environmental sciences, and consulting. Sessions will address both interdisciplinary aspects and how science and practice can contribute, the business case for environmental sustainability, and how sustainability can become a competitive advantage, as well as specific issues relevant to implementation in organizations.
Organizations at the cutting edge of environmental sustainability practices will report on their experiences with interventions to make their operations more sustainable through human resources. Make plans to join us for this important and innovative event!
