Green Human Resource Management (GHRM) is very critical in helping different organizations achieve environmental sustainability. This is a novel concept in relatively many organizations and especially those in the developing countries. Although more effort is required to help organizations in the implementation of the green policy, some of these organizations have already embraced the concept and have been utilizing it in some or all their Human Resource Management (HRM) practices. The main HRM practices generally include recruitment and selection, training and development, performance management and appraisal, compensation and reward, empowerment and participation, and the management of the organizational culture. This shows that HRM has a major role to play in helping turn their particular organizations green. This sets the basis of this paper, which utilizes the desk research but proposes further research in the area considering that it is still a green concept in the field of HRM. For the purpose of this paper, the terms businesses, companies, organizations, and firms will be used interchangeably.
