What is it about?

To encourage construction firms to implement green practices (GPs), these firms should be convinced that GPs are a financially viable endeavour. We examine the influence of GPs on corporate financial performance (CFP) and investigate whether firm size influences that effect.

Why is it important?

Two important findings of our study are that a) green project management has the highest effect on CFP and b) large firms with high levels of green business practices and green project management attained higher CFP than small and medium enterprises. Therefore, our findings confirmed that the positive GP–CFP relationships are not the same across various areas of GP and firm size.


I hope this article will motivate construction businesses to improve their environmental accountability. A flexible approach by the policymakers is important to boost GPs in the construction industry.However, our study is restricted to one developing country, Malaysia. A global study involving both developed and developing countries is proposed to test and validate the model to provide a holistic understanding of the subject.
