Environmental management and green practices have a tenuous relationship with organisational innovation. Green innovation (GI) pioneers may attain and maintain a competitive advantage. Thus, excellent green innovation performance assists businesses in increasing their efficiency and establishing and enhancing their core competencies. The objective of the paper is to test the variables that determine the performance of GI in Bahraini businesses. The antecedents selected are green innovation strategy (GIS), green organisational identity (GOI), Environmental organisational legitimacy (EOL), and green creativity (GC). This is hoped to set the base for future research in Bahrain, as this topic in general and those variables specifically are less prevalent in the literature in Bahrain. This study applies SEM modelling through a partial least square to a sample of 47 firms from the Bahraini companies. The results suggest that GIS, EOL, and GC significantly positively impact and improve the prediction of a firms GI performance. The impact of GOI was not substantial. This might be because managers in Bahrain do not attach a high value to the cultural identity of the organisations members for green development. They do not work to establish shared epistemological beliefs about protecting the environment to deal with complex environmental challenges.
