This study examined the impact of environmental knowledge & awareness of employees on sustainability performance of organization among 173 commercial bank employees in Batticaloa Region of Sri Lanka. It explored environmental knowledge & awareness of employees associated with employee green behaviour and the possible mediating role of employee green behaviour between environmental knowledge & awareness and sustainability performance of organization. Multiple regression analysis demonstrated that the environmental knowledge & awareness of employees were significantly associated with green behaviour among the employees of surveyed banks. It was also established that the association of environmental knowledge & awareness of employees and sustainability performance of the bank is partially mediated by employee green behaviour. This study contributes to fill out the research gaps exist in the area of study to some extent and offers practical implications for the managers of banks to establish efficient and constructive mechanisms and encourage the bank’s staff to implement environmental policies into actions.
