Abstract

This article identifies and examines the criteria for evaluating the quality or "greenness" of the environmental performance of companies. These criteria are organized within the context of four general models of organizational effectiveness: an organizational goals model, a system resource approach, an internal process and operations model, and a strategic constituencies model. The evaluation criteria are mostly mutually exclusive, being associated with only one model. This suggests that each model will produce a different characterization of greenness. Only two management approaches, total quality environmental management and industrial ecology, are components of several models. These approaches might have wider applicability in linking the models in order to develop one view of greening. Finally, an alternative evaluation approach, the creation of a corporate green index, is proposed.
