Green Human Resource Management (henceforth, green HRM) has gained worldwide recognition nowadays. It brings together human capital for the welfare and sustainability of the organization. Green HRM undertook eco-friendly human resource practices, promoting higher efficiency, lowering costs, and better relationships among employees. It also helps the organization reduce CO2 emissions by resorting to e-filing, online job advertising, online conferencing, online interview, online advertisement so on and so forth. This study, therefore, aims to examine the manager’s perception about Green Human Resource Management and its practices in the corporate sector of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (henceforth, KP), Pakistan. Data has been collected from the corporate sector of KP using a questionnaire. The sample size consists of 64 managers. A total of 24 questions have been asked from the managers of KP’s corporate sector about green HRM.  The questionnaire was divided into three different categories. The data analysis shows that on average 63 percent of the managers do green practices and 38 percent do not, 64 percent of managers do eco-friendly practices in their industries while 53 percent of managers do not, and 42 percent of managers are working to expand the sphere of green HRM practices but 57 percent of managers do not work as such to expand green HRM practices in their organization. The study suggests that organizations need to start giving training on Environmental Management, designing waste management policy, using public transport, employees’ hiring and firing based on green actions, using software to go green, and incentives to employees for maintaining a green work environment.
