A new global study of more than 3,700 students at 29 top business schools, conducted by Yale University in collaboration with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and the Global Network for Advanced Management, finds that corporations unwilling to act on environmental issues are increasingly punished by the men and women they would like to recruit. 44 percent of students are willing to accept a lower salary to work for a company with better environmental practices. Conversely, about one-fifth of respondents expressed an unwillingness to work for companies with bad environmental practices no matter what the salary. Students also overwhelmingly consider environmental action a profitable stance, noting that environmental protection will improve economic growth and provide new jobs.
