Abstract

Adopting green practices (GPs) in project organisations is one way to address the hazardous impact of construction activities and improve environmental performance (EnvP). EnvP refers to the outcomes of practices that aim to protect the environment (Ardito & Dangelico, 2018; Lee, Ooi, Chong, & Lin, 2015). To ensure superior EnvP, studies have identified three crucial GPs during project planning and implementation. These practices are green supply management (GSM) (Woo, Kim, Chung, & Rho, 2016; Yusof, Tabassi, & Esa, 2020), responsible consumption (RC) (Martens & Carvalho, 2017; Zhu, Zhao, & Sarkis, 2011) and waste management (WM) (Ajayi et al., 2017). With environmental regulations and certification yet to be effective in curbing pollution (Li, Zuo, Cai, & Zillante, 2018; Raman, 2019), and the increasing number of accidents and deaths at construction sites (Dermawan, 2018), doubts have arisen in the construction industries of developing countries about whether GPs achieve environmental goals (Palansamy, Chin, & Tan, 2019; Shurrab, Hussain, & Khan, 2019).
