This dissertation explores the development of a human capital concept that is here referred to as "green footprint competence" among workers and members of organizations that position themselves as "green", "organic", or "environmental solutions providers". The research contributes to the studies of social and environmental change by analysing three aspects of this change: a) the institutionalisation of the global green and low-carbon discourses as values, norms, and discursive practices within organizations in Kyrgyzstan and China; b) the emergence of the green organizational identity; c) and the development of the new competences for the climate change adaptation and mitigation along with the "green identity" of workers and members of greening organizations. The key argument formed as a result of this research is that the development of standards for measuring and reporting of the Personal and Organizational consumption of Earth Resources (i.e.,. personal and organizational carbon and/or ecological footprints), requires a more democratic and inherently more participative approach through developing green competences of organizationsâ workers.
