Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), like large corporations, confront new issues related to business sustainability, which necessitates playing a part in environmental protection and enhancing environment-based human resources management strategies in order to remain in business. Green human resources management practices (GHRMPs) have been found to positively impact innovative performance. However, the mechanisms by which GHRMPs influence innovation are not well understood. This study aimed to examine the mediating role of individual green values and job satisfaction in the relationship between GHRMPs and innovative performance. Using a sample of 605 small- and medium-sized (SMEs) hotels and travel agents, structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) was conducted using SmartPLS program v4 to analyze the obtained data. The study found that GHRMPs were positively related to both individual green values and job satisfaction, and in turn, individual green values and job satisfaction were positively related to innovative performance. The results of this study suggest that individual green values and job satisfaction play a significant mediating role in the relationship between GHRMPs and innovative performance. Practical and theoretical implications were elaborated on and discussed.
