Social responsibility and environmental management have been for some years at the focus for a lot of companies, which do consider them as important part of their strategy. Human resource management is one of the functional strategies and part of top management in the organizations capable of playing a particular role in crafting and implementing policies that contribute to the environmental management and responsibility. This orientation, recently recognized as “Green HRM”, is broadly elaborated in the worldwide HRM literature and closely related to the environmental management system. The companies do implement practices of HRM by orienting them towards the engagement of employees in green management. Processes like recruitment, selection, training and performance compensation are perceived and “modeled” in the light of green management practices. This paper intends to present the green approach of HRM in the theoretical framework, based on the existing literature, and also to evidence how Albanian organizations are grasping it.  The objective is to bring out the good practices of leader companies in green HRM as a mean to draw the attention of as many other organizations as possible to highlight the importance of this approach in activities that are both profitable and socially responsible.
