Although the environmental impact of nonprofit organizations is likely significant, those in the sector seem to have largely ignored this fact.

Our analysis suggests that motivators of environmental performance in nonprofit organizations remain minor, and that countervailing barriers to green behavior by nonprofits remain more significant than those faced by businesses.
