Abstract

In an attempt to curb the hazardous effect of construction activities, there is a heightened debate about whether the perceptions of green practice (GP) advantages will encourage the adoption of GPs and improve environmental performance (EnvP). This article investigates the role of environmental, economic and reputational advantages of GPs and their relationship with EnvP. The data were collected from 148 project managers from the Malaysian construction industry and analysed using partial least square structural equation modelling. The results demonstrated that the relationship between green supply management and EnvP is more pronounced when environmental and reputational advantages are perceived as low, with the strongest effects derived from low perception of environmental advantage. The results advance existing knowledge by verifying the moderating effects of the advantages of various GPs. At the end of the article, several recommendations are made to help policy makers and project managers improve the EnvP of construction projects.
