AbstractGreen Human Resource Management (GHRM) practices are increasingly considered a crucial business strategy for organizations in environmental management and have impact on environmental performances of organization. Though much attention has been given on GHRM practices, very few studies exist relating to this issue in developing country context.

Methodology: The PLS path modeling technique is used to test the hypotheses of the study based on a questionnaire survey of 340 responses from the manufacturing sector. Findings: The empirical finding shows that the GHRM practices have significant effects on OEP and GEE was found positively mediate the impact of GHRM practices on OEP. Originality/Contribution: This research has theoretically contributed to the green HRM/HRM literature by discovering the relationship between various green practices and their results related to EP in manufacturing organizations. This paper extends the literature by exploring the indirect effects of GHRM on OEP via GEE. The results recommend that GHRM practices may lead employees toward green empowerment to achieve environmental performance.
