Abstract: The role of energy efficiency (ENE) is regarded as the prime goal for reducing environmental pressures; co-existing in the form of the organization’s extensive energy dependence and resource depletion. Therefore, the current examination proposed to test the empirical association of ETL and TRL in influencing green creativity (GRC) and eco-innovation (ECI) in higher educational institutes of Indonesia. Moreover, given the significance of ENE in curtailing negative effects of power consumption in environmental degradation, the present study also examined the impact of GRC and ECI on ENE by particularly focusing higher educational institutes. The study applied partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM), and the results recommended that eco-innovation and have a positive and significantly influenced by green transformational leadership. Moreover, the results further suggested that eco-innovation and green capacity have significantly and positively impacted by ethical leadership. Finally, the results of PLS-SEM confirm that eco-innovation and green capacity have significantly and positively impact on ENE on international schools in Indonesia. In summary, the results confirmed that green transformational leadership, eco-innovation and GRC are very important and significant contributor in enhancing ENE in higher education sector of Indonesia. The study recommended that government need to pay more attention on environmental friendly innovations to reduce environmental issues and enhance ENE in Indonesia.
