Environmental concern has become a dominant phenomenon around the world and is now identified as one of the greatest challenges human has ever faced. Besides, it is agreed by several researchers that organizations are considered to be one of the highest contributor towards climate change and in the final analysis, going green comes down to individual behaviour because it is only through changing the behaviours of individuals that the problems of environmental issues related to organization outcome can be addressed. Thus, by changing behaviour towards pro-environment will not only can contribute towards greening organization but also will help to prevent further environment destruction. However, empirical research on developing model or solution to foster employee pro-environmental behaviour in workplace is still lacking. Parallel to this, many researchers supported that emotional intelligence is belief to be one of the element that can influence human behaviour specifically towards employee behaviour in an organization. On the other hand, scholars from Islamic studies mentioned that Islamic work ethics is positively related to commitment behaviour and employee attitude toward change, therefore, by analyzing previous researches, this study attempt to explore the role of emotional intelligence (EI) and Islamic work ethics (IWE) towards Theory Reasonable Action (TRA) in fostering employee pro-environmental behavior (EPEB).
