Growing environmental concerns have become the basis of the organisation’s “go green” definitions. Eventually, Green Human Resource Management (GHRM) practices are getting more consideration among the environmental activities as well as human resource support through green practices by the organisation. The goal of this study is to scrutinize the connection between GHRM practices such as green recruitment and selection, green environmental training and development, green compensation and reward, and green performance evaluation with pro-environmental behaviour among the manufacturing employees in Malaysia. In this study, a questionnaire was used to gather data from 536 respondents, which were then analysed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software. The results revealed that there was a significant relationship between predictor variables and proenvironmental behaviour. In conclusion, the findings of this study may assist, as a recommendation, Malaysian manufacturing industries in better understanding the importance of GHRM practices towards organisational sustainability by enhancing pro-environmental behaviour.
