چکیده [English]

Global climate change is a serious environmental problem that has turned out to be the most dangerous to human health and natural systems. This should be important to all people such that they must share their experiences and researches on more sustainable ways of preventing damages to the natural environment and resources. Organizations are an important part of society and able to play a vital role in regard to environmental sustainability. They have to educate their employees and encourage them to be environment-friendly. To deal with growing threats of climate change, it is thus imperative to stimulate employees to exert green behaviors in place of work. Green behaviors represent such activities as in line with saving energy and water resources, avoiding waste production, and garbage recycling. Among leadership styles in the literature, green transformational leadership has received little attention while it seems to have the most impact on the incidence of such behaviors. Employees' environmental attitude is potent to facilitate the effect of green transformational leadership on green behavior. Accordingly, the present study is aimed to examine the effect of green transformational leadership on employees' green behaviors considering the mediating role of environmental attitude.
