The purpose of this study is to identify inadequacies by examining the state of GHRM practises in Malaysian manufacturing organizations. It proposes methods to tackle the shortcomings and identify important drivers for employees to exemplify environmentally responsible conduct and practise. Further, it proposes a theoretical framework to fill the identified gaps and build a sustainable organization. The qualitative research approach was utilized by the researcher in this study. Data were collected from the informants and further included in the analysis by the researcher. In order to collect all relevant information and data from the informants, the researcher conducted semistructured interviews for the purpose of this study. To assist the researcher in achieving the intended goals, the researcher has conducted interviews using open-ended questions. This study highlights status of green human resource practices such as green recruitment and selection, green training and development, and green rewards and compensation. The findings suggest that there is further scope to utilize the full potential of GHRM practices for encouraging pro-environmental behavior in the organizations. Analyses of data also reveal that top-management support and mutual learning among departments are crucial to facilitate green behaviors among employees. This study provides a comprehensive literature review of green human resource management practices. It suggests an interdisciplinary framework for building holistic sustainable organizations by integrating learnings from green human resource management, green supply chain management, competitive advantage strategy and green corporate social responsibility. It highlights gaps in the system and provides insights to managers and policy makers on building holistic sustainable organizations.
