Abstract

Since from the last few decades, many environmental issues are arising, the government of various nations has directed the industries and organizations to focus on an environmental management program along with their business operations. As tremendous exploitation of natural resources constantly degrading our environment, the government of different nations have come up with different Environment Protection policies ensuring that organizations and industries adopt those policies in their business process for sustainability goals. Green Human Resource Management is a new concept adopted by many organizations now a day. Many organizations all over the world today have incorporated Green HR policies as a part of HRM along with traditional CSR activities to make the employee aware of their responsibilities towards environmental management.

The academic institution has its own role in society and the environment. Many educational institutes have come up with green initiatives to help the students and employees responsible for the protection of the situation but the complete implementation of green HRM polices is not possible. This research paper will help to identify the standard green practices applied to higher educational institutes and to determine the level of Green HRM practices implemented in the academic institute. This will be beneficial to the higher education institute for being responsible for the protection of the environment

Keywords: Green HRM, Green Human Resource Management, environmental management, academic institute
