Keywords:Green knowledge management, green innovation, sustainable development, consumer resistance, environmental knowledge, conceptual framework, organizational green culture, pro-environmental behaviour
This paper explores the concept of Green Knowledge Management (GKM) and its relationship with sustainable development and green innovation. A comprehensive review of relevant literature was conducted to gain a better understanding of the components of GKM. Based on this review, a conceptual framework was proposed to outline the intricate interrelationships between GKM, green innovation, sustainable development, organizational green culture, consumer resistance, pro-environmental behaviour, and environmental knowledge. The proposed framework stresses the significance of managing green knowledge effectively to attain sustainable development goals through green innovation. It also highlights the importance of promoting an environmentally friendly culture within the organization to strengthen the link between green knowledge management, green innovation, and sustainable development. Furthermore, the framework acknowledges the potential resistance of consumers towards adopting green innovation products. To overcome this challenge, companies must provide adequate environmental knowledge and encourage pro-environmental behaviour among consumers. This will enable companies to manage their green knowledge effectively and promote sustainable development through green innovation. In conclusion, GKM is a crucial factor in developing green innovation and achieving sustainable development. Organizational green culture plays a significant role in strengthening the bond between GKM and sustainable development. The proposed conceptual framework provides a clear understanding of the complex relationships between green knowledge management, green culture, sustainable development, consumer resistance, pro-environmental behaviour, and environmental knowledge. It underscores the importance of managing green knowledge and fostering an environmentally friendly culture within organizations to achieve sustainable development goals through green innovation. This paper's findings have significant implications for companies that seek to promote sustainable development through green innovation. By effectively managing their green knowledge, companies can develop innovative solutions that address environmental challenges while achieving sustainable growth. Furthermore, by promoting an environmentally friendly culture, companies can ensure that their employees and customers embrace sustainability as a core value, leading to a more sustainable future for all.
