People around the world realize that environmental concerns are one of the urgent problems facing every community. Green marketing practice is now expanding to the Asian region where environmental threats are disturbing governments and citizens. Environmental management and protection take a prominent place on the globe, where environmental pollution already harms the bio – diversity. The lack of adequate environmental legislation, weak policy decisions together worsened the situation. Therefore, immediate action is needed to protect the nation's environmental resources for the benefit of current and future generations. Since consumption is unavoidable for human existence, the green product is regarded as a means of reducing the environmental effects of human consumption. The introduction of green products in the consumer market has offered a better direction of consumption by decreasing the negative environmental effects of consumer products. Therefore green marketing was chosen as the theme to underpin the study. Green consumerism was chosen as the central theme in the green marketing paradigm. As a result, the integrated conceptual model was constructed to predict purchase intention and behavior towards green products. Altogether, eight antecedents as environmental attitude, environmental knowledge and awareness, perceived consumer behavior, habit, subjective norms, price, brand image, marketing information were incorporated in to the proposed model. Thus, the suggested model is regarded as the extensive model to predict intention towards green products. Furthermore, this model can indeed be introduced among customers at a global level to assess purchase intention and behavior towards green products.
