This research study aimed to investigate the impact of knowledge management strategies, specifically knowledge creation, knowledge acquisition, knowledge sharing, and knowledge application, on green innovation practices. Knowledge management strategies encompass processes within organizations that involve the development and dissemination of knowledge to enhance business performance. Harnessing knowledge is crucial not only for competitiveness but also for fostering innovation in support of sustainability. Green innovation practices have garnered attention from scholars and policymakers due to their ability to address environmental concerns. Furthermore, organizations increasingly recognize the importance of green practices, prompting globally competitive entities to continuously enhance their competencies to mitigate environmental degradation and improve overall organizational performance. Therefore, this study identified knowledge management strategies as variables that can support green innovation practices. To conduct the study, a quantitative research approach was adopted, and data collection utilized a closed-ended questionnaire adapted from a prior study. The questionnaire was distributed among employees in the public sector within the Klang Valley region of Malaysia. Purposive sampling was employed to select participants, resulting in the successful collection and analysis of 256 data sets. Descriptive and inferential statistics were performed using SPSS software. The findings indicate that knowledge management strategies, encompassing knowledge creation, knowledge acquisition, knowledge sharing, and knowledge application, positively and significantly influence green innovation practices. Among these factors, knowledge sharing was found to have the most substantial impact on green innovation practices. These results confirm the importance of knowledge management practices for organizations seeking success in green innovation practices. Therefore, it is recommended that organizations support knowledge management activities to enhance the adoption of green innovation practices.
