This chapter reviews conceptualizations of sustainability for organizations at both the individual and firm levels, with a focus on environmental sustainability. We discuss the structure of sustainable actions performed by organizations and employees, measurement issues, and antecedents and consequences of sustainability. We also review implications for organizations seeking to manage their employees toward better environmental performance.
