Environmentally conscious HR practices involve implementing policies for eco-friendly resource management to achieve sustainability goals. Literature highlights a growing interest in the link between eco-friendly HR practices and business sustainability in emerging and developing nations. Recognizing its importance, current research explores the moderating role of stakeholder environmental demand in promoting green practices for achieving organizational sustainability. This exploration aims to provide valuable insights into the contextual constraints shaping the effectiveness of environmentally conscious HR practices in driving organizational sustainability. The study adopts an explanatory approach, aiming to establish a causal link between GHRM and corporate sustainability while exploring the moderating effect of stakeholder environmental demand in private healthcare organizations. The collected data from 240 employees was analyzed through SEM-PLS. The outcomes reveal that the green HR practices have statistically considerable and beneficial effects on organization sustainability, both directly and when moderated by stakeholder environmental demand. The research leads to the identification of best practices and tailored strategies for implementing GHRM in the healthcare sector, considering the unique environmental and socio-economic factors of the region. Moreover, the moderating role of stakeholder environmental demand underlines the necessity of synchronizing GHRM practices with the specific demands and expectations of stakeholders.
