AbstractThis study examines the value of green human resource management (GHRM) in supporting environmental cooperation with customers and suppliers, and the moderating roles of internal green supply chain management (GSCM). A survey of 126 automobile manufacturers in China is analysed using moderated regression analysis, based on a proposed conceptual model grounded in ability–motivation–opportunity (AMO) theory and contingency theory (CT). The results reveal that GHRM is significantly and positively related to environmental cooperation with customers and suppliers, and that the relationships are significantly moderated by internal GSCM. HRM practitioners are advised to develop GHRM practices that provide training (ability), incentive (motivation), and conductive environment (opportunity) to help implement environmental collaboration, while SCM practitioners may improve internal GSCM to strengthen the effects of GHRM. This study clarifies key GHRM practices that contribute to GSCM, and advances related research by developing and testing an overarching model to explain such synergies and the moderating role of internal GSCM.
