Academics have paid less consideration to how inter-firm learning in the literature of green supply chain and human factors facilitate the environmental performance of the manufacturing sector in emerging markets. Portraying upon the intellectual capital-based view, the study explores the impact of green human capital on green supply chain learning and environmental performance. This study has used the SEM approach to test the theoretical framework grounded on the data collected from the 291 supply chain professionals of manufacturing firms in Pakistan. This study found that green supplier learning and green customer learning progress green internal learning. Our study indicated that green human capital enhances all tri- dimensions of green supply chain learning, which directly improves the environmental performance of supply chain department manufacturing firms and also helps HR professionals make policies to improve environmentally conscious behavior by utilizing their human capital as a competitive edge. The findings of this study add in to the literature and extend a new body of knowledge by investigating GHC as an indicator to improve GSC learning by assessing intellectual capital-based views. The findings also encourage managers to seek a competitive edge by using green human capital and green supply chain learning to achieve firm environmental performance
