Abstract

This paper investigates the impact of leadership support and strategic flexibility to implement green management practices in SMEs. In line with the aim of the study, a survey was carried out on a sample of 358 SMEs which operate in the chemical industries in Turkey. The findings revealed that leadership support contributed more than strategic flexibility to the adoption of green management practices of SMEs. However, the combined effect of leadership support and strategic flexibility was the greatest.
