Therefore, the ultimate goal of the MBAcademy is to inspire and support researchers and practitioners in business and management not only nationally, but internationally. The MBAcademy would like to provide facilities for researchers and practitioners to collaborate internationally and also to be a hub for academic and management discussion, information gathering and consultation. The MBAcademy’s main purpose is to support different ranges of activity including setting up academic conferences, journal publication, and educational and management consultancy to inspire researchers and managers around the world to contribute to practice by creating new theoretical frameworks in organisational studies and the social sciences.

Abstract:Green behaviour is an increasingly important topic gaining much attention worldwide. This study examines the linkages between religious value, environmental knowledge, and green purchase behaviours from a sample of 190 Muslim consumers in Indonesia, a country with the world’s largest Muslim population that accounts for about 80% of all Muslims living in Southeast-East Asia. Using partial least square (PLS), a variance-based structural equation modelling (SEM), results indicate that religious value positively affects green purchase behaviours, with environmental concerns, green purchase attitudes, and green purchase intentions as mediators. In addition, this study demonstrates that environmental knowledge has a positive impact on green purchase behaviours. To the literature, this study also confirms that religious value is a multidimensional construct (intrinsic, extrinsic, and quest) with reflective first-order and formative second-order items. Consequently, the study provides practical implications for green marketers to fine-tune their marketing strategies, as well as directions for future research.

Keywords: environment, green product, environmental knowledge, religious value, purchase behaviours, formative construct
