Abstract [en]

Environmental policy statements are nowadays fairly ubiquitous, particularly among large organizations. Environmental policy statements continue to be seen as an important element in the sustainability initiatives of organizations. However, if they are to have a chance of achieving the desired positive outcomes that those in their favor highlight, they must first be readable and comprehensible to the targeted stakeholders. To investigate the readability of environmental policy statements of IT companies, the individual environmental policy statements were collected of the IT companies within the 2009 Greenfactor study. A readability calculation tool was then employed to assess the readability of each of these environmental policystatements. Results are reported, and the implications are considered, while limitations are noted and directions for future research are identified.
