Over the past decade, topics pertaining to the natural environment, such as climate change, environmental degradation, resource depletion, and pollution, have become increasingly prominent in organizational research, with academics attempting to answer important questions regarding key determinants and outcomes of pro-environmental engagement. In an effort to synthesize the work undertaken in several disciplines, including management, business, organizational psychology, and corporate social responsibility, this chapter presents a review of the research methodologies in pro-environmental research based on 118 articles from 14 journals. Specifically, it provides an extensive examination of empirical research by sample characteristics, approach to research, research strategy, data collection methods, types of data used, and level of analysis. It also highlights the strengths and weaknesses of each methodology.

Keywords:   environmental psychology, environmental research strategy, green organizations, natural environment, pro-environmental research, research methodology
