Green human resource management (GHRM) involves the alignment of the firm’s HRM practices to environmental management system. However, the specific impact of GHRM practices on employees’ pro-environmental behaviours, most especially in the information technology (IT) domain has not been fully clarified. Therefore, this study posits GHRM practices like recruitment and selection, training and development, compensation and reward, performance management, and empowerment and participation as determinants of employees’ pro-environmental IT practices. Based on the responses from 68 HR managers and 333 IT professionals in Malaysia, the results of path model analysis confirm the significant impact of green training and development, and empowerment and participation. Furthermore, the implications of the findings are discussed, and suggestions offered on the deployment of GHRM practices in stimulating employees’ pro-environmental IT behaviour.
