Background - Sustainable procurement behaviour (SPB) has a critical role in sustainable procurement behaviour implementation. Despite the growing interest in studying environmental management and its potential benefits to industry, few studies have examined the antecedents of employees' sustainable procurement behaviours. In response, this study offers a comprehensive review of fragmented SPB literature and using ability-motivation-opportunity theory (AMO), Stakeholder Theory, Social Identity Theory and Transformational Leadership Theory to define the construct of SPB and proposes a conceptual model of the SPB. Research Objective - This study aims to investigating drivers of SPB and the mediating role of affective commitment to change in federal government of Malaysia. Research Paradigm - This study adopted positivism paradigm which focus on identifying explanatory associations or causal relationships through quantitative approaches, where empirically based findings from large sample sizes are favored-in this regard, generalizable inferences, replication of findings, and controlled experimentation have been principles guiding positivist science. Research Design/Methodology - This study adopted descriptive and explanatory research design. Descriptive analysis is important in describing the demographics of subjects, environmental perceptions, and environmental behaviour of workers in the workplace. For the understanding of their impact on SPB at work, explanatory analysis is used for establishing causal relationships between various variables. The link between these two methods contributes to the ultimate purpose of the hypothesis creation and testing research objectives. In this study, the analysis consists of three phases: The pre-test, the pilot study and the main study of the survey tool. Findings - Pre-test conducted on four experts in sustainable procurement and academician shows that the instrument adapted has been well justified and that can be used for data collection purposes with few additional suggestions.
