Abstract: In recent years, the organisations have become more awaken of the vital role played by green initiatives. This paper seeks to examine how green human resource management (GHRM) contributes to the environmental performance (EPF) through employee work-life. Based on a comprehensive literature review on green HRM and EPF, a theoretical model was proposed for investigation in which direct and indirect effects of green HRM (GHRM) on EPF were tested relying on a survey data collected from 356 employees of leadership in energy and environmental design (LEED)-certified companies using structural equation modelling (SEM) methodology. The results evidenced significant mediation effect of work-life in the relationship of GHRM and EPF; however, the mediation via private life could not be supported. Finally, the paper discusses implications of findings for the practitioners and direction for future research.

Keywords: Green HRM practices; green HRM; private-life and environmental performance; working-life.
