Abstract

The need for a more sustainable approach to the management of resources is a key focus for all stakeholders, including organisations. Using a range of qualitative and quantitative approaches within a UK case study construction company, this paper examines the key underlying factors impacting on corporate pro-environmental behaviour. The findings indicate that even though staff generally exhibited strong environmental attitudes and beliefs, these did not always translate into sustainable practices. Based on the findings, strategies on enhancing sustainable environmental management practices within organisations, particularly within the construction sector are also presented.
