The aims of the research are to present a model of environmental performance by measuring the effects of a firm’s greenpractice in conjunction with inter-functional coordination mechanisms, and in turn, measure how environmental performanceinfluences firms’ economic performance. Moreover, this study synthesizes both ecological modernization theory (EMT) andcomplementarity theory (CT) as a theoretical lens to develop a comprehensive model. The results of this study showed thatgreen practice-manufacturing coordination and green practice-supply chain coordination have positive effect onenvironmental performance. However, the relationship between green practice-marketing coordination and environmentalperformance and the relationship between green practice-IS coordination and environmental performance were insignificant.Moreover, environmental performance is confirmed as an important antecedent of economic performance. Discussion andimplications are provided.
