Abstract: This study aims to investigate the elements of green management practices (GMP) and its association with firm performance. A GMP model that consists of the key elements of GMP is proposed and firm performance indicators are formulated to provide a foundation for the adoption of GMP. Hutchison Port Holding (HPH) is selected as the case to illustrate the application of the proposed GMP model in a real-life situation. The findings suggest that GMP consists of the following elements: (1) cooperation with supply chain partners, (2) environmentally friendly operation, and (3) internal management support. Findings of this study also indicate a positive relationship exists between the adoption of GMP and firm performance. Hence, operators in the container terminal industry should strive to adopt GMP in order to achieve good firm performance including improvement in terminal throughput, profitability, and efficient and cost-effective operation.
