Abstract: Environmental sustainability is clearly one of the most ardent problems that societies are facing today. The new face of the world seen from globalization perspective, sometimes results in corporations being stronger than states, by twisting the politics to play in their favour. It is important that highly educated employees contribute more to push the organizational environmental performance and mitigate for measures being adopted to tackle the climate change issues. Generations Y and Z are playing a key role in stopping this crisis, as they're the majority of the working population worldwide for the present decade. This study aims to indicate which factors mainly influence pro-environmental intention of current students in various European universities, when considering a job. The literature and latest acknowledgements from the job market portray a tendency that the job seekers and hiring companies should have compatible core values in order to attract and nourish long-term collaborations. The correlation between the students being sustainability savvy and their criterias when looking for employment needs to be checked, because this could be a source of radical changes in the job market and the companies' models of running their businesses in the future.
