Abstract

The focus of this study is to explore the top management perception towards green innovation implementation in the Government-Linked Companies by understanding: (i) the impact of green concept on innovation implementation in the company and its directives, (ii) how top management value green innovation and their leadership attributes, (iii) innovation that is widely diffused, and (iv) the significance of green innovation to organizational sustainability. The participants involved were top managers from two Government-Linked Investment Companies, 11 Government-Linked Companies and two Multinational Companies. Purposive sampling technique was chosen to select the people to be interviewed, and multiple-case sampling was chosen for organizations because it added certainty to findings. The interviews transcriptions were transferred to the NVivo, a computer assisted qualitative data analysis systems (CAQDAS), to help in data managing and themes generating. Open-coding resulted in 67 unique codes and were reduced to axial coding (major themes) and further collapsed into four group themes of selective coding. Findings of the study indicated that green innovation implementation concept had an impact on image and future projects allocation by the government. The study also revealed that the top management was responsible for green innovation directives due to companies' bottom lines. The finding also showed that data fitted the working model for leadership attributes by combining Situational Leadership and Strategic Leadership into Eco-Situational Strategic Leadership where sustainability was positioned as an opportunity for dominant foundation of competitive advantage and corporate survival especially when technological green innovation was widely diffused in the companies. This study also proposed the Green Pinnacle Model to understand the significance of green innovation to organizational sustainability
