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
