Employees’ pro-environmental behaviour is a solution area for concern in the hospitality industry for addressing environmental issues. The goal of this study is to assess how employees’ pro-environmental behavior has a direct relationship with green recruitment in tackling and reducing carbon emissions in the workplace. A quantitative research design was employed using survey primary data. Primary data collected from certified Five Star hotels in Lagos State, Nigeria and analyzed by Structural equation modeling and Partial least square. The research findings established a significant direct and strong relationship between green recruitment and employees’ pro-environmental behavior within the ten five-star hotels in Lagos State, Nigeria. This study adhered recommendations and directions for future research within the available limitations. The findings from this study will be useful for the hospitality industry for Nigeria and in a different geographical area.
