Abstract: Continuous innovation keeps running the businesses. The rise in environmental issues and, in turn, the awareness growing around have led people at large to make purchase of their most needed products and fulfil their requirements, which adhere to environment-friendly norms. Because of the environmental concerns and legal constraints, several organizations are producing green products. There is a stiff competition among the brands to establish themselves as the environment friendly green products. The sustainability for these green products depends on many factors. The important among these are packaging and pricing. To influence the purchase behaviour of consumers and thereby attracting them to purchase green products, innovative ideas in marketing for the longer shelf life of such products are required. The pace at which the green products move out of the shelf impacts an organization’s bottom line, and it has a tandem effect on the environment protection. The article aims at examining the effect of marketing innovations on the longevity (agility) of green product market agility (GPMA). Examining the effect of marketing innovations involves two aspects, and we have kept both aspects parallel to each other. One aspect is to examine the effect of packaging, that is , marketing innovation on packaging (MIPA), and the other aspect is to examine the effect of pricing , that is, marketing innovation on pricing (MIPR), with consumer purchase behaviour acting as a mediator between MIPA and GPMA and consumer purchase intention acting as a mediator between MIPR and GPMA.
