It will be the people in organizations and not technology alone that will make the transition to a green economy possible.” As People & Strategy’seditor for organizational effectiveness and the editor for the just published Special Issue of People & Strategy “Transitioning to the Green Economy” Jeana gathered multidisciplinary thought leaders and compelling case studies from around the world pointing to the need for HR’s role in the sustainability movement.
