Author(s): Muhammad Shoaib, Roman Zamecnik, Zuhair Abbas & Ayesha Nawal

This study aims to investigate the influence of green human resource management practices on environmental performance under the lenses of AMO theory with the mediation role of employee green involvement. Nowadays, every industry is concentrating on sustainable growth as environmental issues such as global warming, water shortages, emissions, and so on are becoming more prominent. Green Human Resource Management practices (GHRM) play an influential role in bringing green initiatives to its employees. The questionnaire was distributed among Pakistani manufacturing companies and gathered data from 140 employees working in it. The data analysis and assessment of the study's hypothesis and the mediated impact between green human resources and environmental performance were done using PLS-SEM. According to the findings, three sets of Green HRM practices focused on the Ability-Motivation Opportunity framework significantly affected employee green involvement. Furthermore, work involvement in green initiatives was linked to improved environmental performance. This paper makes a meaningful contribution because it is the first empirical proof in Pakistan's context, and it would assist managers in revisiting HRM practices to create a pollution-free environment.
