Abstract

This study aims to investigate the relationship among green knowledge sharing, green dynamic capabilities, green service innovation, and green competitive advantage. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and CFA. The results are as follows: First, the author found that latent variables have good reliability, as well as discriminant and convergent validity. Global model analysis of green knowledge sharing yields acceptable results. Second, according to structural equation modeling analysis, the overall fit measures of the green knowledge sharing model scale passes the threshold standard (χ2 = 810.66, p < .05, GFI = 0.83, RMSEA = 0.094, NFI = 0.87, CFI = 0.90, SRMR = 0.051, NNFI = 0.88, PNFI = 0.76, CN = 101.95, χ2/df = 4.43). Third, the author discovered that green knowledge sharing improves green dynamic capacities, green service innovation, and green competitive advantage. Green dynamic capabilities positively affect green service innovation and green competitive advantage. Furthermore, it was found that green dynamic capacities and green service innovation mediate the positive relationship between green knowledge sharing and green competitive advantage. The results demonstrate that green dynamic capabilities and green service innovation mediates the positive relationships between green knowledge sharing and green competitive advantage. In addition, this study indicates that green service innovation partially mediates the positive relationships between green competitive advantage and its antecedent—green dynamic advantage.
