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.
