This study explores the motivational factors that influence information technology (IT) professionals’ pro-environmental behaviors (PEBs). Based on the self-determination theory (SDT), autonomous and controlled motivations were posited as determinants of PEBs. Besides, the green human resource management (GHRM) literature was integrated to examine the direct and indirect effects of GHRM practices. The hypothesized model was tested using data collected from 333 IT professionals in Malaysia. The results supported the view that autonomous motivation and GHRM practices have significant effects on PEBs. Also, GHRM was a significant moderator of the effect of autonomous motivation on PEBs. On the contrary, the hypotheses that controlled motivation has a constraining effect, and GHRM has a moderating effect on PEBs were not supported. Thus, this study extends the SDT by incorporating GHRM literature to demonstrate that IT professionals’ PEBs are associated with environmental practices based on interest and value.
