Siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst leidis oma koha peamiselt põhjusel, et adresseerib mitmeid keskkonnaalaseid teadmisi puudutavaid aspekte organisatsioonis, mida mitmel pool ei tunnistata praktikate tasandil või ei teada. Tekst võiks siiski huvi pakkuda kõikidele, kel vähegi huvi kestliku arengu ja keskkonnaküsimuste vastu.

Kontekstiks:

“Knowledge is an intangible and abstract asset free from the tangible world and plays an essential role in the smooth functioning of firms (Fu et al., 2022). Considering the dynamic nature of the business world (Kumari et al., 2021), it is commonly believed that firms that could manage the knowledge embedded in their operations would lead others (Aamir et al., 2021), and failure to do so can overturn the game (Shahzad et al., 2020).” (Yu et al., 2022, p. 1)

Probleem ja eesmärk:

“The need for green knowledge has increased significantly based on environmental challenges. The current study aims to shed light on the rarely explored concept of GKM by developing and validating an instrument for GKM by following a mix-method approach where quantitative and qualitative methods are integrated.” (Yu et al., 2022, p. 1)

Kolme keskset valdkonda:

“Particularly new studies highlight the significant impact of combining these factors on the economy, environment, and society, which are the critical components of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNDP, 2021). These three domains are interlinked and support each other. For instance, knowledge facilitates individuals and organizations to boost their innovation capabilities (Chamba-Rueda et al., 2021).” (Yu et al., 2022, p. 2)

Konkurentsieelise saamiseks …

“By applying green knowledge, organizations can introduce novel ideas, processes, and technologies to create a competitive advantage.” (Yu et al., 2022, p. 3)

Vihje lugemishuvi suurendamiseks (organisatsioonihuvilistele):

“Organizational structure should enable employees to acquire pro-environmental knowledge from internal and external aspects. The newly acquired knowledge should be appraised objectively so that a clear understanding of the material can be created and the new information can be integrated into the framework of existing knowledge.” (Yu et al., 2022, p. 5)
