Abstract

Purpose

The aim of this study is to investigate the employee perceptions of organizational support for environmental behaviours and its impact on innovative environmental behaviours and frequency of involvement in upstream oil and gas supply chain management. The study also examines a new area where environmental work culture has been introduced as a facilitator on the relationship between employees’ perceptions and engagement in supply chain management.

Design/methodology/approach

Self-administered questionnaires were used for collecting data from supply chain managers in production arrangement contractor and service provider company in Kuala Lumpur. Partial least squares was used for data analysis.

Findings

The findings reveal that supervisory support for environmental initiatives and environmental training is positively related to employees’ perception of organizational support for environmental behaviours, while rewards provided by the organization for environmental behaviours are not associated with it. The employees’ perceptions of organizational support for environmental behaviours have a significant impact on employees’ engagement in environmental behaviours in both forms of employees’ frequency of involvement and employees’ innovative environmental behaviours. The findings also show that environmental work culture moderates positively the impacts of organization’s support practices (supervisory support for environmental initiatives and rewards provided by the organization for environmental) on employees’ perception of organizational support for environmental behaviours.

Originality/value

The study critically examines the possible impact of enablers of engagement in environmental behaviours and how employees’ perceptions of organizational support reflect their engagement towards environmental behaviours of the organizational practices. The findings are useful for supply chain management practitioners in terms of exerting environmental behaviours and facilitating employees’ environmental behaviours in the upstream oil and gas supply chain management sector.
